Photo of beat up looking magazine distribution boxes with the legs of a man walking by


I wanted to say something smarmy here about ‘old media’, just because of the photo, but I can’t.

Just taking a cheap crack at paper publications, is too easy and really I LOVE what I get from things like Durham Magazine (and I read the News & Observer, Indy, Carolina Living, etc). And, umm, I’ve flipped through Carolina Woman to look for possible clients… Just that, I swear.

So the dilemma—post the photo with fake barbs, or scrap it?

I just decided to post it and tell the truth. And I still think it’s an interesting image, and leave the interpreting up to you. I do sort of wonder though, when these ugly boxes will go away in the city, and people will get the publications elsewhere.
