Salon’s cover story today is about the increasing number of incredibly bloated magazines that cover the “new economy”. I have to confess that I don’t read any of them, but the last time I looked them over, I was amazed at how huge these things have become. Fast Company and Business 2.0 have gotten about as fat as Vogue or those JC Penny catalog-sized bridal magazines. And the sad thing is that these magazines are incredibly boring. Cast aside these magazines and pick up the New Yorker or the Economist. At least they’ll fit in your briefcase.
