Do you work for a print magazine?

Do you have a sneaking suspicion that your managers have bound and gagged the magazine, ferried it in the trunk of a car to a remote plot of land in the countryside, and forced it to kneel down before its own open grave? (Can you hear a distant rifle being cocked?)

Here are two skill-testing questions you can use to find out for sure!

  1. Do you believe a “digital magazine” should have “pages”?

  2. Do you believe the “pages” of a “digital magazine” should “flip”?

If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then somebody has a plan to drive your magazine into the ground.
