Anyone who’s worked in print journalism knows on some level her life’s work will end up lining the bottom of somebody’s bird cage. I accepted that as part of the ephemeral nature of daily news reporting. You could even think of it as a positive spin on the fate of the written word; at least there was a way to recycle old newspapers.
But what’s the use of the little bytes of data that have been permanently misplaced after a website cash? Old blog posts can’t even be recycled as bird-doo catchers. I’m pretty sure I’m not bitter nor philosophical about this turn of events.
Just amazed! Lookie…now you see it, now you don’t. Where did my 2016 posts go?
