I’m never in agreement with those who write the obit for print.
But this week I received two magazines that give us reason to pause, and assess where we are headed.
Full disclosure. I write a column for CW. In this issue I happen to talk about using quick response codes as a means of extending the conversation…beyond print.
I tend to agree with statements like this: “Actually print is where words go to live” – John Griffin, President of National Geographic‘s magazine group.
Print lives in zones we never imagined. Two examples again:
- Take Scribd. Publishers such as New York Times and Simon & Schuster are part of this.
- Then take a look at Living Stories, a Google Labs project involving the New York Times and Washington Post.
Interesting isn’t it?
