The Columbia Journalism Review had a rather interesting blog post commenting on ZDNet’s post about printing and things that are making offset printing obsolete. Lauren Kirchner’s “Don’t Get Your Printing Advice from a Printer Manufacturer” is great, if not for the great analytical content, then simply for this: “So essentially, I realized, I was reading and analyzing a blogpost written by someone like Microsoft’s Clippy.“ Hilarious.
Al Qaidia entered the magazine business this month with the Inspire web mag. Designed to appeal to young jihadists, the magazine had article titles like “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom,” and what to pack for a jihad. According to NPR, the glossy magazine had lots of Western media attention but isn’t really getting the attention of their target audience. Goes to show, the magazine biz isn’t easy for anyone, even those who seemingly have a captive audience… “Al-Qaidia Magazine Draws Attention, But Few Fans.”
Huffington Post had a great post on our Internet Interrupted Brains. Turns out, we have poor attention spans. Who knew?!
Wait, just got a ping… Okay, I’m back, what I miss? Oooh something shiny! What were we talking about?
Have an awesome August!
