  • The U.K.’s National Newspaper Building is open. Here’s what it looks like

    British Library | Harrogate Advertiser | The Baltimore Sun

    More than 60 million newspapers are now at home at the National Newspaper Building in Boston Spa, West Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, according to the British Library. The building opened on Friday.

    The National Newspaper Building was purpose-built to provide the ideal environmental conditions in which to store millions of old newspapers – many of which are in a fragile state. The vast facility, which houses around 33km of newspapers, maintains constant temperature and humidity, and a dark and airtight, low-oxygen environment to eliminate the risk of fire. The newspapers are stored in high-density racking 20 metres high and collection items are retrieved by robotic cranes, which transfer stacks of newspapers via an airlock to a retrieval area where staff can remove requested items and send them either to the British Library Newsroom at St Pancras or the on-site Reading Room at Boston Spa.

  • Dean Baquet: ‘I don’t have enough time’ to tweet

    Spiegel Online

    New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet told Der Spiegel in an interview published Friday that he’s too busy to stay “constantly” active on Twitter:

    I know this is going to get me in trouble, but I’ll say it: The whole notion that I am supposed to constantly tweet is ridiculous. There are a lot of journalists at the New York Times who tweet. I am not opposed to it. But I don’t have enough time. And editors don’t have much to say. My world consists of this office, this floor, my apartment and wonderful conversations with our reporters and correspondents — all of them know a lot more about the world than I do.

    Baquet has taken criticism for not being active on Twitter in the past. In October, Steve Buttry called on newsroom bosses to lead by example on social media, saying those who don’t put a damper on leadership in innovation. Read more

    The New York Times | Mashable

    The last two paid staff members at Modern Farmer walked out on Friday, Kim Severson reported for The New York Times. The magazine and website, founded in 2013, “ceased publication Friday, as the last of the paid editorial staff members walked out its doors. The future of what remains of the Modern Farmer brand is uncertain.”

    Hail and farewell MT @ModFarm: Been obnoxiously tweeting for 5 months here. Today I have no idea what to say. @Jesse_Hirsch, signing off.

    — Cara Parks (@caraparks) January 23, 2015

    Founder and editor Ann Marie Gardner left the magazine in December, Joe Pompeo reported then for Capital New York.

    Gardner was known to have a fraught relationship with Modern Farmer’s investor, the Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra, who recently agreed to keep the magazine afloat in exchange for additional shares from Gardner, who was a minority owner.
