Backfence deal with start-up newspaper

OK, this is interesting in a couple of different ways.

First, Backfence has struck a partnership deal with a community newspaper.

That community paper has been around for only 9 months, according to this page.

It’s home page is a splash page that morphs into a page of nothing but title ads and an entry button. Once inside, the site attempts to use Flash to complete preserve the print metaphor (warning — slow load, but at least you can be entertained by a typewriter typing, if you find that entertaining).

So Backfence, a pretty darn progressive new media company is partnering with a publisher who apparently doesn’t get the Web at all?
