  8. Archived Music Press | Scans from the Melody Maker and N.M.E. circa 1987-1996

  9. Subcompact Publishing — by Craig Mod

    I’ve only read a third of this so far but it’s very good. There are so many opportunities for small publishing these days, while the old, slow big publishers struggle. (via @readmatter)

  10. Off The Page – David Hepworth on magazines and beyond: InPublishing

    On how much has changed. “…you could supply the NME’s news editor with a piece of information secure in the knowledge that it would not escape into the wider world for the week it took to get through the production and publication process and actually appear on the page.” (via @matlock)

  11. Bookslut | WE WILL CONVERT THE KING IF POSSIBLE: The Greatness of Little Magazines

    Really worth a read. “The Web, one would think, opens up all kinds of possibilities for imaginative typography or design a la BLAST, but adventurous publishing like that is rare. Why? The pageviews-for-cash, keywords-are-compulsory bottom line? Laziness? Dullness?” (via Magazine Modernisms)

    Jason Scott has been busy importing loads of old computer magazines into Internet Archive. Great stuff (and a great job!).

  16. Ubuweb :: Dada Magazine

    I love early 20th century avant-garde magazines and all that. Here, PDFs of issues 1-3 of ‘Dada’, from 1917 and 1918. All in French but still, just *feels* exciting.

  17. Flipboard | Beyond The Beyond

    Bruce Sterling on Flipboard, magazines, etc. “Why not send me [Lady Gaga’s] Flipboard? Why not sell me that? By subscription. Then it’s magazines all over again. What fun!”

  18. Incompetence, Malice and ereading

    Yes, this. So many iPad magazines are focusing on the whizziness. I’d just want the easy-to-read-ness.

  23. The Wired Tablet App: A Video Demonstration | Epicenter |

    Wired magazine’s demo of their tablet version. We’re going to end up with a different UI for every single magazine/publisher aren’t we…? Oh dear. Also: “At the bottom we have … the scrubber.” Ha ha!

  24. The Online Photographer: Old TIME, New TIME

    A nice comparison of two copies of Time magazine, from 1968 and today.

  28. Welcome, ‘Wired’. We call this land “Internet” | Boing Boing Gadgets

    Interesting thread on Wired mag vs, the relative importance and worth of each, their writers, conflicts of differing deadlines, content length, etc. No easy answers.

  30. STACK independent magazine subscription and delivery

    Subscribe to a mixture of magazines. Lovely idea. The limited selection is a bit too “style” for my taste, but still. (via Russell Davies)

  31. Newspapers and magazines - Digital National library of Serbia

    Scanned and browsable issues, from the avant-garde ‘Zenit’ to ‘Advanced Beekeeping’. Awesome (especially if you read Serbian).

  32. MagCloud

    Self-publishing, publish-on-demand magazines. Send a PDF, and they handle printing, delivery, subscriptions, etc. Seems such an obvious idea now Derek Powazek and co have done this. (via Daring Fireball)

  33. Condé Nast set for a flurry of launches - Brand Republic News - Brand Republic

    Apparently planning a UK edition of ‘Wired’. Hahahahaha Boohoohoohoo. (via Haddock)
