Ziff Davis Now Paper-free!
Written by John Zipperer at 11:50 AM
Publisher Ziff Davis Media has effectively exited the print publishing world with its closure of the print edition of Electronic Gaming Monthly, according to a Folio: news alert. In November 2008, the company announced that it would stop publishing its once-hefty PC Magazine and made it web-only.
Ziff has a history of being a leading tech and consumer publisher, but it also has a history this decade of being almost constantly on-the-brink financially, so I don't think this is a case of my warnings yesterday coming true. But noteworthy.
