Maybe Print Is Dead!

I recently wrote an editorial arguing that print is not dead (and filed my copy pretty much the day my old employer, InfoWorld, killed its paper edition).

Since then, Network Computing (of which I was editor in chief for a spell) shut down, as did Optimize and, before that, the old Network Magazine.

These were all fine magazines, but what really gets my tears flowing is hearing that the Weekly World News will no longer be gracing our supermarket checkouts. This publication was one good read. Besides aliens, Bigfoot and Bat Boy, it has some amazing prose. If you want a perfect example of alliteration, just check out one of their leads.

There is clearly massive change in the world of media. But I still believe that those who do print right will survive for decades to come. Heck, my group has four magazines that all prove that point!

Do you love or hate print? Let us know at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
