Maybe I’m just an old crank when it comes to my current musings about the challenges facing magazines, newspapers and printed books.
Though I live on my computer, I come from a print background.
In college, I was editor of the newspaper and, at the same, time a professional journalist with the long-defunct Hartford Times. I went on to become a stringer for Time magazine while getting my graduate degree in communications at Stanfrod, edited a magazine for public information officers in the Navy, became a national writer for the Associated Press and was a Money magazine writer.
So, my affection for print is hardly surprising. Yet three recent events and one insight have brought the issue (no pun) to the top of my mind.
