Greg Harman of Belden posted the following to the Feds-DigitalMedia list, and with his permission I’m reposting here, just because I think it’s fun.
Once upon a time newspapers were oh-so-au-courant — we used the very latest technology to get up to the minute news & our names reflected that “technology forward” attitude we had back in 1863. So we called our newspapers “The Telegraph”? or “The Telegram”? or some such thing.
But, 150 years have passed — perhaps we should envision new brandsâ — here’s some ideas.
The New York Modem
The Chicago Link
The Ypsilanti Keyboard
Santa Fe New Internet
The Seattle HyperText
Anyway, just dreamingâ€¦..somebody wake me!
BusinessRockford.com is the new name of our daily/Sunday biz sections, our new weekly print mag, and the new Web site. One step at a time … :-)
There is a newspaper called Link. It’s the Virginia Pilot’s free, daily tab. But I like the idea!
