A P-I Without Paper

Hearst calls it pulp fiction; on the other hand...

The Hearst Corp. is knocking down Bill Richards' piece on Crosscut, revealing the company's plans to test an E-paper - a bendable electronic edition that would be the high tech version of that wad on your doorstep. Richards says the first test market could be Seattle, and the P-I. Hearst says no no, but there's yes yes in its denail. My reading is that essentially it's going to happen, maybe not as soon or precisely as Richards says, although he got much of his confirmation from the same Hearst spokesman who is telling a different story to the P-I. Bottom line - it's like Bill Gates said recently: Forget paper, your delivery boy of the future is an invisible signal. Someday that vibration in your pants could just be Art Thiel, arriving.
