Only for those who understand Dutch - the largest Dutch newspaper “De Telegraaf” had a one-page article today on WOW and the launch of the Dutch cruisers - enjoy Lert!

Damn, WG marketing must be having a party right now:Smile_teethhappy: I'd bet the EU server sees a player spike.

 

Neat to see mainstream media taking an interest in something like this, guess the historical significance is appreciated.

I think how much of that you still have is influenced by the age of your population.

Most of the elderly people I know prefer the paper, and use tech devices for other uses, and only because younger relatives have bullied them into it lol.

Overhere, the elderly watch TV, the young watch YT and streams. I'm worried about reading and written language dying with me. Seriously.

A fear I share, along with the possible demise of rigorous research and critical thinking. Access to orders of magnitude more information havent made us more knowledgeable. We are regressing in everything except natural and computer science.

A recent study in France proved this is the first generation in records to rank lower in IQ tests than its previous generation. Regressing is accomplished, now the question is, how far back?

Well, I am officially old, but have been in computers since 1986, in internet and search engines  from 1993 (worked with Tim Berners-Lee, for who still remember who he is), so screen junkie for a long time but there is one habit I will not give up: paper paper and a cup of coffee…and yes, we no longer access traditional tv - older generation is probably defined as true consumers of what is put in front of them, whereas younger generations are more intention-driven - decide what you want to view, and go search a medium that offers it…

I was forced out of it... Once upon a time I remember on Sunday mornings opening a window to the whole world, news from around the globe, very interesting opinion articles, even the beloved comic strips... It has been some years now that my window became reduced to a keyhole and International news got replaced by "look at my belly button" news and luxury watches advertisement. I had to move to digital, actual paper was dead.

Too many characters for a Twitter tweet. I can’t understand this wall of text, you blowhard!

IQ tests are notorious for prizing the social status  & information knowledge base of the 1960's male.

 

If you all want to judge yourself against Pete Campbell  & co, knock yourself out.
