Are geomags a dying breed?


Am I the only geek who still reads magazines? Thanks for the photo to https://www.flickr.com/people/orphanjones/

I just received a copy of a GI magazine (title deliberately withheld). Yes there are such things. The content is good, particularly if you work in the heavy lifting end of GI or are interested in public sector and policy issues.

 

Out of 36 pages there were only about 5 pages of adverts including a page of classifieds. I don’t know much about the economics of publishing a small, limited circulation specialist magazine that is sent to readers for free but it is difficult to see how anyone can earn a living like this. End of an era?
