When union workers in Scranton, PA, rallied on Feb. 23 to protest “union-busting tactics” in Wisconsin and Ohio, the local newspaper didn’t just tell readers about it. The editors of GO Lackawanna provided a Microsoft Tag that took readers of both the print and online stories to a video of the rally.


We think this is a great way to combine traditional and digital media and provide richer content to mobile consumers – just scan a Tag with your smartphone and instantly get the latest news and videos.
