Just over a year ago I started a Flipboard “magazine” – accessible to those with an iPad or other tablet device. I was joined by Elena Maceviciute in curating the magazine and between us we manage to cover most European languages (Finnish, Estonian, Greek and Hungarian being the missing ones!) We didn’t imagine, then, that by today we would have more than 30,000 readers of the magazine. But that’s the situation. Moreover, I discovered, quite accidentally, that you can also access the magazine through your desktop browser, by clicking on this link. The contents of the magazine consist almost entirely of news items from around the world, with an occasional document in html – Flipboard does not, at present, allow the incorporation of pdf or doc files. The system is not perfect for a digital archive, since at present, it is not possible to search within an individual magazine. Perhaps that will happen at some point.
