Quote, unquote: Getting out of the paper business, not the magazine business

“We’re not getting out of the magazine business. We’re getting out of the paper business. The ability to look at what others are tweeting, share on your social networks, and pull in related content are things that print can never do.”
-- Ziff David Enterprise CEO Steve Weitzner, expanding on the company's decision to go 100% paperless starting in January on eWeek, CIO Insight and Baseline, which have a combined circulation of 400,000.

I mourn that magazines and such are going into a 100% electronic format... Yes, being electronic does allow them to get more involved in social media and the like, but there's something so much more enjoyable about being able to disconnect from computers and other electronic devices and actually be able to flip through a physical magazine.
