Long before the internet, television and radio ran our lives … the single source of information for most was the newspaper. And while we’ve all heard the saying “Extra! Extra! Read all about it” … most people don’t know how this phrase came to be.

You see … newspapers were published on a daily basis. And, there needed to be a deadline … so the publishers could send it to print.

Well … as we all know … the world has never turned based on publishing schedules.

There were often major events (for example … the death of a President or a declaration of war) that occurred – after the deadline had passed. In these urgent cases, newspapers would run an extra edition.

Paperboys would shout the phrase on street corners, to drum-up enthusiasm … and sell more papers!

So, what does this have to do with my new role? Well … nothing really.
That said, I’m working on an urgent role for my client … so … take a minute and have a quick read.
