Delayed: I’d like to thank the fine folks at the Newark International Airport for providing wi-fi. While it cost $7 a day, it’s worth it when your flight is delayed for four hours due to the fact that someone heard it thunder somewhere and decided that all the airplanes east of the Rockies would be better off not going anywhere.
Market share of what? According to the NYPost, a Time Inc. spokeswoman says that a free preview issue of All You now slated to start landing in Wal-Mart stores today is only a “a sample issue” designed to build market share in advance of the first issue, slated to hit August 13.” There will be 500,000 copies of the free version. I wonder if they’ll use those sampling ladies who give out cut-up egg rolls and cut-up meat products on tooth-picks to hand them out.
An upscale Lucky? According to the NYPost’s Keith Kelly, Conde Nast is considering starting a culture magazine and would like to purchase Forbes (but they can’t get anyone at Forbes to say, “hi.”)
Another blog-lite day: I am enjoying a gathering of my colleagues from the world of custom publishing today and then head back to Nashville so I doubt I’ll be blogging much. Or, who knows: perhaps the wi-fi gods will embrace me along the way.
