Wednesday marks a milestone in Dutch-language Internet history: a same-day digital reproduction of the print Nederlands Dagblad will be sold online.
The first customer will be Prime Minister Wim Kok, who will make the purchase at 9:15 a.m. local time at the Persmuseum in Amsterdam. What’s certain is that the digital copy of the newspaper, described as a “small Dutch Christian daily,” will be downloaded and viewed in Adobe’s portable document format. What’s not certain is whether the P.M. will be using his own credit card for the purchase.
The newspaper can be found online at http://www.nd.nl.
