Because I read almost everything through Bloglines, I’ve pretty much unsubscribed to every industry email newsletter I once read. Even if the newsletter publisher didn’t have its own RSS feed, most provided content I’d already picked up elsewhere.
The one exception is INMA’s Newspaper Industry E-Newsletter. It always links several good reads that I’d missed. This week:
- Internet poised to pass newspapers as source for local shopping
- A new study on why people read newspapers
- A fascinating piece on why newspapers went broadsheet in the first place (reg req). You should read the whole thing, but the short answer is that in Merrye Olde England, publishers were taxed by the page, so they made the biggest pages they could.
