paeoi“I’ve been blogging since 1999 so I’m neither [a print publication nor a website]. But there is a difference. Magazines are about editing and choice, while the Internet is about immediacy. The art of making a magazine is editing. You have to make a choice, stick with it, then it’s out in the world and it’s done. That’s why I don’t believe print is dead. It’s not just old people, it’s young people too. A 20-year-old photographer doesn’t care if their photograph is posted online. But if that photo gets in a magazine, they love it. They understand it’s a big deal.”

-Ralph McGinnis, co-founder of tasty zine Put A Egg On It, in an interview with author Jeremy Leslie in The Modern Magazine: Visual Journalism in the Digital Era (Laurence King)
