The Long Good Read: the compability of printed and digital media

If something is becoming evident these days is that, despite what the naysayers and pessimistic say, digital and printed media are not only incompatible, but increasingly complementary. This condition is visible in those media who use both digital and paper formats, since they can diversify their contents depending on the characteristics of each platform. And this is precisely what the British newspaper The Guardian, a pioneer in testing new formulas, is experimenting with its decision of betting on a paper with extensive reports on a weekly basis. "The Long Good Read", as it has been named, is made up of extensive reports which demands a longer and more relaxed reading time, different in shape and posture from the reading experience in digital media , be it a computer, a tablet or a smartphone. However, given the cultural and leisure habits of our country, maybe a coffee is not the best place to leave the product of this nature, since they are more of a hangout than a place of relaxation , and even if they are away from the noise of bars, the silence is conspicuous by its absence.
