Strictly hypothetical …
What if newspapers, for one day, shut down or didn’t update their websites? Would it force readers to seek out other ways to get their news – especially local news? – or would people actually go out and buy a paper?
My former employer’s website crashed/got hacked a few years ago, and a coworker walked around waving that day’s edition of the paper – information that, obviously, could not be obtained via the Internet.
“See this?” he asked as he waved it in the middle of our department. “This never crashes!”
