The future of publishing (cont'd.) ...

... this time, magazine publishing: Do-It-Yourself Magazines, Cheaply Slick. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

This should be of special interest to bloggers, I would think. Check this out, too: An interview with Bob Walkenhorst. I liked this:

My first career in music, 1982 to 1997, was mostly driven by ambition. My second wave, 2003 to present, I consciously try to avoid anything ambition-driven. Free downloads? Sure, why not? Make good music; the rest will take care of itself. Maybe.

  1. DIY mags = neat. I don't know why this reporter didn't compare the technology to lulu.com or other print-on-demand services, though. Seems more apt than a "vanity publishing's equivalent of Youtube." And "vanity publishing" - WHEN will that loaded phrase go away?
