MagCloud.com

HP is trying to reinvent the world of magazine publishing with wholly-owned MagCloud.com, a Web site and system that makes it almost as easy to publish a magazine as it is for an amateur (to be kind) writer to blog.

That's pretty cool, but what's cooler is that the site is testing out Azure, Microsoft's new cloud platform.

MagCloud.com uses HP printing technology to print these rags on the fly. I've long had what I think is a better idea: Have home printers built to print magazines and Web sites formatted as magazines.

Here's what I wrote in April 2007: "I think the computer industry can and should save print, and here's how. We get HP, Lexmark and all the other printer companies to make inexpensive printers that can take a digital publication, print it in all its four-color glory, staple it and let you take it to where the real learning takes place -- the bathroom."
