On September 9th, editor-in-chief Espen Egil Hansen, of Norwegian Aftenposten, went head to head with the world's biggest content hub, Facebook.

Posted by Thomas Wittenburg on 25/07/16 15:52

30%. The price to sell your items on the App Store. Whether it's an app or products you sell through the app. This is neither new nor surprising.

Hidden treasures in the archive

Most newspapers date back tens, if not hundreds, of years. Extensive archives date back to first editions, the last words of a loved editor, some of mankind's darkest days and brightest moments. A lot of this history is hidden in dark basement archives, where it only comes out on request by historians or other research scientists.
