Continuing the TFP Discussion
This is today's edition. The red lines indicate that I was hovering over the article; as alice indicated, clicking opens it in a new window. (As far as the "scanned" part goes, I don't imagine that they physically scan a paper to get these images. It's more likely to me that they come from the same layout software that is used to send to print.)
One of the points I was making yesterday, which I think has gotten a little lost in the discussion (probably because I didn't make it clearly), is that the NEW TFP site (www.tfponline.com, not www.timesfreepress.com) allows subscription-free access to html articles and is search-engine enabled. Therefore, the silliness shown and described above (and in comments to my previous post) is no longer a problem.
Podcasts, sort-of blog-ish things, and full online access comprise a giant evolutionary leap for this particular dinosaur.
Local blogs, Chattanoogan.com, the Pulse, and the CTFP are all ways in which we access information and opinion. My view is that they all work together.
We'll keep pressure on the paper to do things like, say, allow comments on their blogs.
