Time-Life had much the same problem a year or two ago with their "pathfinder" site. They weren't going to push any of their individual titles -- you know, the titles everyone was familiar with -- instead, they had this aggregator creation. To the relief, no doubt, of millions, the thing was eventually scrubbed and now pathfinder.com just re-directs you to Time.com.

But will they use Blogger to publish the sites?

Does this include Wired? Or will they continue to let an intern over at Terra Lycos handle it all?

No, Anil, but they plan to have Roz Chast and Malcolm Gladwell carry on an electronic flirtation until one crosses the country to live near the other.

If their current crop of sites (including the Vogue network and GQ) is any indication, prepare to be wholly undwhelmed. Not to mention four years late.

Just because they can, doesn't mean they should.

Hey, you've got to admire them for waiting for all the other publications to find out whether it was an enormous money sink with no bottom-line benefit.
