Funny piece from Amy Gahran on Poynter:
“You paid for this?…” he frowned, shaking his head. “How do you search it?”
“It’s not really searchable, but it’s scannable. See, you can open up the pages wide and see lots of stories.”
“Looks like mostly ads.”
“Well, yeah, this page is mostly ads…” I rifled further through, and tossed aside entire sheafs of pages. “But then some pages have several stories, usually at the front of the sections. There are no links, though.”
“You’re kidding! What good is this, then?”
But as Amy notes, lots of people like it. Some even swear by it.
