It doesn’t surprise me at all anymore when a newspaper or a magazine announces they’re stopping their print editions and going all-digital. I don’t like it, still like to actually hold a newspaper or magazine in my hands, but I’m old school. I know print is not the future.
Newsweek announced last week that it’s closing down its print edition and going all-digital in 2013. Howard Fineman wrote an interesting blog post about it for the Huffington Post called “Newsweek is Dying But Its Spirit Lives On.”
Is Newsweek really dying? It’s interesting to me that when a publication in print goes all-digital, so many in the media say that publication is dying. I mean, if going all-digital—basically being on the internet only—is the future and here and now, then that publication really isn’t dead is it?
Maybe I’m reading too much into it.
