Two points.

This is a newspaper that was born (easily) in my lifetime (1986), I actually remember the launch – and when in the UK, an avid reader (yes the print version and yes even today). In an industry where Newspaper lives are measured in centuries, to see one born and die in my lifetime is a measure of speed of change.

Meanwhile, The Guardiana much older newspaper, fully embraced the idea of digital very early.  By embracing, not rejecting, digital it not only lives .. it thrives.
