Yes, this is the future of magazines (and newspapers and books and …)

Judy O’Connell asked if the video below is the future of magazines. Yes, absolutely. Maybe not by 2010 or 2012 but sooner than we think. And for newspapers and books too. And, to a lesser extent, maybe we’ll even start seeing more interactivity and/or multimedia embedded within scholarly research, government or policy center reports, and other manuscripts.

If ‘news’ is becoming more of a commodity every day, perhaps it’s this sort of added value from which publishers will make their money. I know I’d pay for something like this from my favorite periodicals.

Thanks to Ewan McIntosh for the tweet that led me to this. Happy viewing!

  1. Wow…they didn’t spend enough time on the swimsuit models…just my opinion. Great stuff, can’t wait for 2010.

  2. That is amazing! I might actually subscribe to a few magazines. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This is really great and fun if you’re at home or with your computer!! However, what do you read then when you’re in your car or bus waiting for something or someone or sitting in the dentist or doctor’s office waiting. We won’t always have our computer with us.
