How soon is now? Culture in a 24/7. Rick Liebling, the Creative Culturalist at Y&R New York blog, March 23, 2012. My quote

When discussing the world of magazine publishing, it’s always a good idea to check in with Samir Husni. Known as Mr. Magazine™, Samir A. Husni, Ph.D. is the founder and director of the Magazine Innovation Center at the University of Mississippi’s Meek School of Journalism and New Media. He is also Professor and Hederman Lecturer at the School of Journalism. I checked in with Husni regarding Need to Know and he told me:

“I think as print changes from a disposable item to a collectable item more and more people are going to enjoy the ”experience making” of print. Magazines are much more than just content providers. They are experience makers. Unlike digital, you can feel their weight, see their real shape, feel their structure and hold the story from beginning to end in your hands. They were, are and will continue to be the best lap top, tablet ever invented… and the cheapest for that matter.”
