Oldest Newspaper In The World To Stop Killing Trees


Via Financial Times:- After several years of deliberation, what is reportedly the world's oldest newspaper has decided that it will publish only digitally. No more Boreal Forest pulp needed, thank you very much. Indeed, the World Association of Newspapers has deemed the world's oldest newspaper (formed 1645), to be the Post-och Inrikes Tidningar of Sweden. Although we can't read Swedish, it appears that the site where the digital version will reside is here . Could this be the destiny of many more newspapers around the world? If so, will we then be burning wood chips to make enough electricity to read them online? Sweden does, after all, have a reputation for doing things green with gusto, as if it were the California of the world. Image credit: Johannes Hjorth (an image apparently based on a practical joke).
