Thinking of the immediacy and rapidly shifting sands of news in our digital age, I wonder about how people will preserve headlines as printed news disappears? No more of those yellowed, fragile banners screaming the most recent catastrophe. No more front pages from the day your first child was born, or snipped out wedding announcements and obituaries. Our paper world is changing as is our intake of news. Will we still hold an image of fading print as we read about our past and future in the cloud?
