Almost The Non-Internet Blog
The Printed Blog plans to put blog content from various sources into the familiar and comfortable form of a paper newspaper you can spread across the breakfast table on a Sunday morning. They say they will start printing this coming Tuesday. They will publish TWICE DAILY! And it will also be available as a PDF online. But where and how to get that paper copy, you ask.
We will be handing out the first hour issues in three primary locations, two "el" stops in Lincoln Park (Belmont and Fullerton Red Lines) in Chicago and at a to-be-determined BART station in San Francisco. It's also likely that we'll hand out several hundred copies to individuals at other organizations, including Chicago-based colleges. The demographics of the readers in Lincoln Park who take the morning "el" trains are men and women between the ages of 22 and 30, generally professional types, who like to have fun.
