Old Media Milestone

I mean old, old media…

Post-och Inrikes Tidningar newspaper,… [t]he world’s oldest
paper still in circulation has dropped its paper edition and now exists
only in cyberspace.

The
newspaper, founded in 1645 by Sweden’s Queen Kristina, became a
Web-only publication on Jan. 1. It’s a fate, many ink-stained writers
and readers fear, that may await many of the world’s most venerable
journals.

"We think it’s a cultural disaster," said Hans Holm, who served as the chief editor of Post-och Inrikes Tidningar for 20 years.

I know it’s fairly meaningless, since the paper’s circulation is around 1,000, but it’s a milestone nevertheless.  (via AP)
