Magazines dies, Magazines launch. It happens everyday, #2

Susan Mernit on today’s “print is dead” meme:

“When it comes to newspapers, they’re pretty much right–industrial grade paper just isn’t the medium of choice for news anymore and reporters aren’t the only people who can cover events and provide informed perspectives. Having said that…let me also add that I think magazines — my beloved addiction – -are in a really different position and may indeed flourish as newspaper decline. The best magazines are finding ways to marry their web and print, their community and paid coverage and creating wonderous and interesting hybrids that newspapers can match.”

She promises more later today. So do I.
