I don’t know what it is really, I can get all the info I could possibly cram into my brain right there on my phone, but I still subscribe to lots of magazines.
I suppose there are psychological reasons attached to this, but there are some very practical ones as well. I tend to read much longer articles in this format and also find that I discover things in printed magazines that I don’t always run across online.
I’ve read Business Week, FastCompany, Inc, Wired, and Entrepreneur for years and hope I can continue to do so. I also subscribe to Website magazine and Target Market. By the way, you can get four weeks of Business Week and subscriptions to Website and Target Market as well as a host of industry specific magazines and white papers free of charge here though an affiliation I have with TradePub.
