Newspaper goes online only, drops print AsianWeek, a newspaper for Asian-Americans, has become the largest US paper to drop its print editions to move to online only.
The 30-year old paper has a circulation of roughly 60,000 and will go online only beginning on Monday.

AsianWeek president and editor James Fang wrote in a letter to all readers that, "There are fewer major newspapers, fewer newspaper readers and fewer newspaper advertisers than ever before. Asian Pacific Americans have led the way in the digital revolution, migrating away from print media and into receiving their news and information electronically."

"To reflect these changing times, AsianWeek will cease regular newspaper publication immediately. We will continue to publish online and in special newspaper editions."

Years ago in college I remember seeing on a bulletin board in the student union "society for asian engineers meets this week". Below it was something similar "Sign up for Black Engineers this Mon".

I kind of wondered what someone would say if they wrote "Society of White Engineers".

Our local paper is getting ready to do the same. They cut out Mondays starting today and said they were getting ready to go electronic only soon. Sucks when you pay up front or you do not have a computer like some people I know who rely on the printed paper.

Electronic news papers now, that is interesting not that i haven't been to the ledger.com. there are many ways to make paper, Reducing landfill is my biggest green concern tree's can be replanted. the law that 1 tree must be planted for every 10 tree's cut down is crap.

most garbaged can be burned,i don't know why we don't build a giant trash incinerator....Oh wait yeah the Asians haven't built one of those yet. led the way in digital revolution, yeah right.
