The rapid death of the Old Boys’ club

The magazine business model remained largely unchanged from the launch of The Gentleman’s Magazine in 1731, until the launch of the iPhone.  Maybe there have been a few subtle changes along the way, but not many.

But we have seen a literal revolution recently. Everything got turned upside down and shaken around, not by the publishers but by the readers.

Some of us have been re-invigorated by this and kept up.

I still love the feel of a printed magazine, but nostalgia can’t stop progress. Those days are gone and it’s a great time for fresh young minds to take over.
