Video is Here & e-Magazines are Happening
New Media – eMagazines & Video
Time to face facts. New media is is taking over, and printed matter is dying. Some forms of old media have died, while others will be dead in our lifetimes. Newspapers, magazines and books are going the way of smoke signals and the horse and buggy. Sure, some of us will miss them, but their demise is inevitable, so you might as well accept and embrace change and move on. One thing is for sure, trees are ecstatic about new media, and for that reason alone, you should be too.
Humans are naturally lazy. We’d rather have someone do something for us, than do it ourselves. It’s easier to watch a movie, or a TV show, than to read a book. The same is true on the internet. It’s easier and more fun to post a video than to write an article, and far easier to watch something for enjoyment or education, than to read about it. Combine that reality with video services like YouTube, and devices like smartphones, and it’s easy to figure out why video has taken off on the internet, and why cable is scared.

What if there was a medium that combined the best of the old, and the new? Thanks to emerging technologies, it now exists, and is readily availabe. Magazines are NOT dead, they’ve just morphed into something better than they’ve ever been. Imagine your favorite magazine on a tablet, where it reads just like a magazine, with page turns, a front cover, and ads. Except everything is sharper, cleaner, interactive, and you can skip around the magazine and easily find articles, without dog-earing a page. Now add sound, and video, on demand and relative to the article you’re reading.
