Emily Gordon writes in her other persona as editor of Print magazine, whose website is about to be completely relaunched, thank the Al Gore:

What’s going to happen to print (lowercase p)? If I figure it out by tonight, I’ll tell you! I’m on a panel about independent magazines at the Art Directors Club, 106 West 29th St. (bt. 6th and 7th), from 6:30-8:30 p.m. tonight. Yes, tonight! I know you’ve got a lot of summer invites, but this will be a lot of fun, and not depressing at all, I promise. I’d love to see you there, friends & fellow magazineers!

Here’s the full description:


On Wednesday, July 8, Colophon in collaboration with the Art Directors Club hosts a unique presentation and discussion about independent magazines entitled “The Future of Print.” This is an essential event for anyone involved in the creative industries.

In recent years, an explosion of independent magazines has reinvigorated the medium of print. Freed from the constraints of the mainstream, independent magazines continually innovate and experiment for their devoted readers around the world. Energetic, groundbreaking, and unafraid, these are magazines for readers who believe that print is still a vibrant medium. Colophon, in collaboration with the Art Directors Club, investigates The Future of Print through a panel discussion featuring editors and publishers from Capricious, Print, Woooooo!, and The Nation.
