Published February 24, 2011

BoSacks Speaks Out: Where Relationships And Creativity Matter

Published October 21, 2010

This article at MediaPost is about a digital perspective written with a digital focus. Nonetheless it is a must read. Not only is it a decent article, I also found it a little scary. Why, you may ask? It is the language that the author is using to describe the digital advertising space experience. The concepts and the expressions are straight from the magazine playbook.

I want to shine the light on an issue that I think warrants discussion by our industry. For lack of a better term, I have been calling it PIP-that is, paranoia in publishing. Here is the core of the issue: We believe that publishing will survive and be quite lucrative for many of the industry's smartest folks, but we can't quite figure out whether we will be part of that group-or part of that survival.
