where are magazines headed ?
"If you're into making books, hurry up before there are no more books being published,"says Vince Frost. "I think there's going to be a migration to people producing things online. "Frost sees printing books as an outdated mode of communication. "It's quite an antiquated thing to produce a book," he says. "Publishers are buying digital companies and things are changing." Certainly, with the advent of digital book readers, self-publishing, on-demand publishing, and authors serializing their books online, there are changing opportunities for people who want to be read, beyond the more standard channels of traditional book publishing. "It's going to be far more fluid than it is now," Frost predicts. "It's very exciting." He also points out that the digital world can certainly help address some of our pressing global concerns. "There are serious environmental issues here," he notes. "We're using up all the world's resources, and now the digital world i staking off."
