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".

    Techdirt Magazine

    Mike that's not that bad of an idea! A tech magazine made for skimming and not in depth reading. It's hard enough for most people to keep up with the tech scene (we're probably exceptions to this rule because of techdirt). I don' think its that bad of an idea
