by | 10th, September 2009

newspapers-dead1IN Australia, The Age tols us on June 13 about an amazing new advent in publishing: The National Times was to go online. Yes, the National Times (if you can find any mention of this organ on Fairfax’s website, please tell us). But it is a big deal:

Fairfax Media is set to relaunch one of Australia’s historic newspaper brands, The National Times, as an opinion and editorial website covering the nation’s political and national affairs debates …

Huge deal:

Fairfax Digital chief Jack Matthews said the advertising-funded site, which had been months in the planning, would include interactive features such as blogging tools, forums and polls to engage readers in debates.

The new site will go online in August.

Want to see what it looks like in September?
