The Simple Joy of Reading a Great… Computer

I’ve always been an avid reader, but I don’t always find as much time as I’d like to sit back and read a good book. Last week, I took a relaxing vacation and rediscovered my love of literature.

Years ago, I recall a rather forward-thinking teacher telling my sixth grade class that people would someday do all of their reading on computers.

“I don’t like that idea,” my friend instantly objected. “You can’t curl up with a computer!” Of course, my classmate was quite right at the time–the computers of yesteryear were big, noisy, and barely transportable.

Hope for Publishing in 2009, Part 1

While on vacation over the holidays, I visited the Barnes & Noble store in downtown Boston at Kenmore Square (you know, where the Citgo sign is). The first thing I usually do when I visit a massive bookstore chain is to check out the magazine racks, which are still piled high with many interesting titles. Even though stores like Barnes & Noble and Borders are large entities, they still manage to cater to many different special interests and topics, which is often best displayed in the magazine racks at these stores. Smaller, boutique magazine publications sometimes end up being sold at these stores, especially when a store is in close proximity to a college (or in this case, many colleges). While there are many general colleges in the Boston area, there is also the New England School of Photography (a.k.a. NESOP, also in Kenmore Square) and the Massachusetts College of Art and Design (a.k.a. MassArt).

With all that in mind, I shouldn’t have been surprised to find a copy of JPG Magazine amongst some of the other art magazines even though I was. I had heard about JPG about a year ago. In case you’re not familiar with the magazine, it’s fueled by user-generated content and collaboration. Photographers submit their photos on the magazine’s website, the website’s community votes on the best ones, and those top-rated photos get published in the next issue of the magazine. It’s a great platform for bringing the Web and print together. Read more »
