Oh yeah. Saw this comment last week on Guido’s blog.
You know newspapers have problems when even loyal Telegraph readers have the following to say:
"We have been reading The Daily Telegraph for years, (not the same copy of course), and only yesterday received a letter telling us that their subscription rate is going up a few pennies. … Meanwhile, back on Doris’s computer, I can get up early, read the papers online in my pyjamas … But best of all; I get real, down to earth information from the blogs, written by people who don’t bask in self importance. I can also occasionally get a word in myself, which I can’t when I write to The Daily Telegraph, because Bill Deedes never publishes my letters."
Chimes nicely with recent stats out from Hitwise showing that over 55s are close to being the largest demographic group in the UK using the internet. The stats show that the 55+ age-group accounted for 22% of internet visits up to 12 May 2007 compared to 23.5% by 35-44 year-olds.
