We've heard it repeated countless times over the last decade: Newspapers are dying.
I don't know if it's true or not. But I do know I don't want to die without ever having worked for one of these fine purveyors of information. So I have gotten a job at one: Bladet Vesterålen, a local newspaper that comes out five times a week in the small northern Norwegian town of Sortland. Circulation: ca 8000.
