London Met University are holding an event on 15 November, next tuesday evening at 6pm looking at the future of magazines and whether the digital version can ever replace the glossy physical product. Speakers include Louise Chunn editor of 'Psychologies' and the president of Conde Naste. Free entry and drinks reception. Details are here


Is that THE Conde Naste... publisher of The New Yorker, Vogue and Wired?

... publisher of the New Yorker, Vogue, Wired and many more. But there's no 'e'.

Ian Reeves is deputy head of the Centre for Journalism

about the stray 'e'. In fact the speaker concerned is James Bilefield, who is President of Conde Nast International Digital.

The sound of Psychologies crashing through my letter box, the smell (and free samples) don't really compare with a notification telling me my new items have downloaded.
I'd go digital for The Week, but as for Psychologies, I don't even bother to use their website - it likes to smack you in the face with an ugly advertorial. Besides, it's always telling me how to switch off from the digital world.
I'd like to go to this event, but I'm not sure if I'll make it, so if anyone else does let me know what gets said.

Yeah I'll watch it on-line!

Will we learn to love digital magazines?
