Bill Keller tries the digital cold turkey


So Bill Keller of the New York Times is trying an experiment on himself: Reading his own newspaper ‘mostly in digital forms.’

I love print, and while this experience is making me appreciate more the versatility and creativity of our web staff, nothing has yet made me love print less.
