Gawker can’t be everywhere

A funny little bit on Gawker about how people want copies of today’s New York Times as a memento of yesterday’s historic election.  Can’t do that with an Internet headline, Gawker acknowledged. I am reminded that I once had a disk of the HTML files for the first-ever farewell Page One at my old newspaper, Copmuterworld. Even if I knew where the disk was (possible), I no longer have a way to read it.

Of course, electronic readers can’t protect the floor from a new puppy, either, but that’s just a market opportunity for the paper business.
