Frank Romano's Potpourri (Pile of Stuff Laying on His Desk)

Published on April 30, 2014

This week, Frank brings us a potpourri of material. We think Potpourri is French for "Pile of Stuff Laying on Ones Desk". Newsweek returns to print, the 1984 Betamax decision, print trumps digital in the attention economy, Chicago bypasses postal service for distribution, and print book growth.

Business Week instigated use of non-postal service delivery well over a year ago. Of course, when you do that, you cannot put the publication in the recipient's mailbox (that's actually a federal offense). As a result, I ended up with that publication in the bushes, run over by cars, soggy from the sprinklers, etc. - the same problems that I often have with newspaper delivery.

I quickly got on the phone with Business Week's subscription department and got switched back to postal service delivery. (Business Week does accommodate such requests, but doesn't publicize it!) The magazine may arrive a day later, but at least I get it in readable form!
