Anniversaries: Berlingske celebrates with tunnel vision, Dagbladet with old news

Mecom-owned Berlingske Tidende, Denmark's oldest newspaper still in existence, celebrated its 260-year anniversary Saturday, and marked the event by creating this time tunnel.

A rather nifty application, if perhaps a bit, well... complicated? I found it a bit dizzyig at first, which is what made me think of tunnel vision, it reminded me of a recent talk with a Norwegian Mecom editor who said Danes had a way of thinking so complicated when it came to web media (many thanks to Helle Kruuse for alerting me to this on Twitter: I could easily have missed it as I tend to read Berlingske, like most news sites, only via my newsreader).

Meanwhile, in Norway Dagbladet is celebrating its 140-year anniversary by printing old news every day for an entire month. Critics of the tabloid - which often is derided for having downgraded its news department - will no doubt ask what's new in that respect.


I sent you an e-mail, but it bounced back ... so not sure if it really went through or not. Anyway ... thanks so much for the puppy information! I'm hoping we'll get there. She's such a BIG dog already.

Happy New Year!

Strange that your email should bounce, I've not received it. You can also try me on kristine dot lowe at gmail dot com
