New Issue: Digital Web Seeks a New Tune
November 25, 2008 at 10:52 PM
Digital Web is headed into our winter break—we take December off to gather our resources and review the year past. But before we hibernate, we have a holiday season present for our readers. It’s a bit of a departure, but we’re thrilled to have Chris Wright join us to ask a light-hearted question, Is The Web Really Helping Us Find New Music?.
Naturally, we have our own motives—this article represents an op-ed piece. It’s not a how-to, or new trick, and it’s definitely not an adventurous CSS idea—we’re thick-skinned around here, but the flamewars around our recent CSS pieces have been a new hurdle in the history of the magazine. So let’s all take a new outlook for the holidays and enjoy what we have.
We’d like to hear your reaction to op-ed-style pieces, too—please leave a comment in response to the article, and in response to its style. Have a happy winter holiday!
I for one would welcome more articles of this sort. ‘Digital Web’ could still offer how-to’s and articles related to practical underpinnings and industry innovation but why not augment that with more open-debate style articles covering whatever could be deemed worthy of mention or discussion in the greater digital realm? The way I see it, as long as the magazine still produces any content worth talking about and sharing with others then it is doing it’s job. No need to confine the zine to being one thing only. DWeb has always been a great instructional resource, but who’s to say it can’t morph into something even more valuable and open up to new kinds of readership.
I say hoist the anchor and let loose the sails.
