The Adpaper, Who Needs News? by Garrick van Buren 1 Comment on The Adpaper, Who Needs News? “Like many of my geek compatriots, I rarely read a newspaper anymore. Paradoxically, when I do, it’s usually for the ads…..The news part of the newspaper was unread and discarded, a big waste of paper in my case.” – Brian Benz Related
One thought on “The Adpaper, Who Needs News?”
I’ve often recommend that, when getting into a new hobby, people buy one issue of all of the relevant trade magazines and read the ads. You get a really good feel for a hobby overall by just reading the ads: what’s important to lots of the participants, who the big suppliers are, etc.
For a while, we used to get the Sunday paper and pretty much toss the paper part and go through the sales flyers.
