Fate of Birmingham Press in the laptop of the gods

The editor of Chris Bullivant's newly launched Birmingham Press has revealed the true scarcity of his resources, according to a report of the paper's launch party on The Journalism Hub.
It reports: "Speaking at the launch of The Birmingham Press on Friday at the city’s Botanical Gardens, Tony Lennox told a group of guests how he was hoping his 'single laptop doesn’t blow up.' After one or two giggly media types laughed this off, Lennox insisted: 'I’m not joking, the entire newspaper – content, pictures, design templates and all – is on a single laptop in my kitchen. I keep on waking in a sweat that the bloody thing’s crashed or that someone’s nicked it. If they did there’d be no edition next week.' "

Back it up on to a flash drive, Mr Lennox.
