One of the many reasons I enjoy working at Newsarama is that the Web media is growing, expanding, and innovating, while the field of print media is dying off.
Newspapers are falling off faster–my professor, an editor at the Philly Inquirer, told us tonight that he doesn’t know if there’ll be an Inquirer there next year–but magazines aren’t doing well either, and the current economy is certainly accelerating the death spiral.
And so today, via Warren Ellis, we have the Magazine Death Pool. Yes, a little schadenfreude with your media-watching. The Magazine Death Pool is a rundown of a bunch of magazines that you never knew existed, and just to scare you (well, if you work in media) some really big names that seemed, er, Too Big To Fail.
If you just can’t get enough of dying media, you can also follow themediaisdying on Twitter.
