Too Many Tech Magazines
from the overwhelmed dept
A rambling discussion in Salon about all these tech magazines and how they have no way to keep their content as fresh and strong as it needs to be to be a “must read”. Personally, I’ve stopped all subscriptions to print magazines (and I used to get a lot). I do still get Business 2.0, but I’m pretty sure my subscription ran out long ago, so I’m not sure why it still comes. I must admit, I used to read it too, but now that they’ve switched to publishing bi-weekly, I’ve noticed they just pile up. I can’t keep up. I read enough news (if you hadn’t noticed) on the web. The article does point out that the time it takes from being a “must read” to a “has been” is now about 15 months. Maybe I should start considering “Techdirt – the Magazine”.
