Drill Down

Drill downed: I must eat crow about the magazine Drill, which I predicted would not last past a prototype issue. It actually survived for two more issues before folding (third item). The five regular readers of the rexblog may recall that Drill was the magazine that raised my jingoistic dander when its publisher was quoted as saying, “The UK is way ahead of the U.S. in customer publishing. The quality of the creative in the U.S. is far behind.”

As I am a proud resident of the friendliest city in America, I will not end this post in the way I am tempted. It wouldn’t be neighborly. However, this does remind me of the potential for eating (and serving) of crow a weblog provides one.

(Thanks to Eddie Lee Rider for the heads up.)
