Am a big fan of newspapers on- but particularly offline. Something romantic – in a nice way – about the whole newsroom schtick…something special about newsprint on your fingers and a cuppa in your hand.

2. How to harness our Herd nature for good (rather than legislation…) (Daniel Finkelstein – Times) hat-tip Matt D’A
Must be copying each other….
