Page by page

Portland's Skanner newspaper now has an easy way to read the actual current edition of the paper on line. You see an image of each page just as it appears in hard copy -- including the ads. We wish more local publications would do this, although with Stenchy hovering nearby, we can always use those hard copies for something.

I'm seeing this with more and more online magazines, and it makes sense with more people reading online publications on tablets.

Complete with sound of turning the page. Nice touch.

The NW Examiner also has this policy.

The Hollywood Star is long overdue for this treatment.

Thanks, John. You took the words right out of my mouth!

I love how the planning department flack -- or whoever it was -- said something to the effect of "changing peoples' behaviors is hard."

Um, I'm paying YOU cretins. And you have the audacity to tell me how I'm supposed to "behave"? Eat a hot bowl of d#cks, City of Portland!
