The last print copy of The Boston Globe will be delivered to my house.

There are a host of people who still say "did you see waht was in the Globe today?"

Then there are those of us who read it online the night before. My wife will often mention an article and I reply "I read is last night, but have you seen...?"

She then reads about it in print the next day.

She already has me on speed dial (to explain what you mean when you write technical stuff ... after all, I am "The World's Go-To Techno Guy" :-)

@Henry: I might have suspected that your trip "home" had some hidden reason (besides seeing your mom...

This really did come as a great surprise -- the idea didn't strike her until the Thursday, so it wasn't till the Friday that I talked to Martin -- I flew back that Sunday and the article came out the following week.

"Ticker tape is soooo 20th century" Kind of like holing up a lit match at the end of a concert. Now we use our phones.
