Maybe a bit off-topic, but to respond to the print vs. web debate:
It sounds to me like you print-advocates are really advocating editorial packaging. The medium in which it's packaged is irrelevant, except that on-line versions offer much greater capacity and flexibility.
Every morning, I skim through the NYT online, Yahoo News, BBC online, The Oregonian online, and the two nearest small-town paper's web pages. I scan far more headlines and synposes than I could ever do with print. And there isn't a bundle of trash left over when I'm done.
Even when reading a print periodical, I have to have the computer at hand to look up cross-references. In fact, many technical periodicals have become mostly summaries of the content. Due to publishing constraints, the majority of the data is often only found in the on-line version.
Oh, and I also keep getting spam from some outfit that's offering electronic-only subscription to lots of those gay and "adult" magazines.
