Judy O'Connell asked if the video below is the future of magazines. Yes, absolutely. Maybe not by 2010 or 2012 but sooner than we think. And for newspapers and books too. And, to a lesser extent, maybe we'll even start seeing more interactivity and/or multimedia embedded within scholarly research, government or policy center reports, and other manuscripts.
If 'news' is becoming more of a commodity every day, perhaps it's this sort of added value from which publishers will make their money. I know I'd pay for something like this from my favorite periodicals.
