I once subscribed to the print edition of CSM and almost never read it. For the past couple of years I've subscribed to CSM RSS feeds and read it all the time. So if I'm a typical person, this plan makes a lot of sense. Still very surprising to see any newspaper take the plunge.

I hear you.

The article says that their weekly print edition is going to be less than half the price of the current subscription; that, paired with even more and better web content, might tap into readers a lot better.

It's funny how nostalgic I get, though, even when I wasn't a reader of their print editions either.

While I was not a reader of the CSM, I must admit that I read most newspapers online myself. Sign of the times… Yet, I find it sad that the glory days of the printed newspaper are clearly history - some of the biggest dailies are struggling seriously. Soon we will carry our ‘Kindle’ to the coffeehouse. Not quite the same…

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
