Interesting online magazines
. Not as popular or commercial as say Salon but interesting reads from a less mainstream perspective. With so many options and so much variety, it’s difficult to stake your claim. What are some of your favorite online magazines?

Conde Nast to shutter Mademoiselle.
The "deteriorating advertising environment" is blamed for the closing of the 66-year-old title, where Sylvia Plath first cut her teeth
on the journalistic life. While Mlle's recent content has devolved into Cosmo
-like treatises on how to please your man in bed and where to buy the clothing that will lure him in that general direction, it is more than a bit upsetting (particularly to someone who's trying to eke out a living as a writer) to see yet another Conde Nast-owned title (Details
and Women's Sports & Fitness
; Fairchild bought Details
out and launched a revamped version) fall victim to the great advertising contraction of the past 12 months.

T new that "Niggaz" stuff would lead to no good....
"And now, flush with grant money from a fellowship supported by Jewish big shots like Steven Spielberg, Charles Bronfman and others, Ms. Bleyer and her post-collegiate buddies are busily working on bringing this new cool-Jew magazine to life. The first issue is due in January. They have assigned some articles and taken some photos, and they also have a title: Heeb, as in the old ethnic slur, short for "Hebrew."

(I searched to see if this had been mentioned today and couldn't find any threads on it. Forgive me if I missed previous mentions...)

It's smut...and I quit!
If I have to choose between Heather Graham and kids that might see her depiction on a magazine cover, well then kids, take a hike! And besides isn't there a censorship something or other involved in this?

her place in Yahoo Internet Life magazine
as one of the most talented brains in history ever to put words together and form coherent sentences. Back in '98 she logged off
YIL. But she's back!
And here I was about to cancel my subscription.. not now! not to mention she's both incredibly intelligent AND drop dead gorgeous! wakka wakka wakka!
December 2000's YIL (no link available) initiates Angela Gunn's return with a column that will focus on Net ethics. Ebert, Katz and Gunn. After all these years you think they finally found the right combination?

Roger Black on Design.
MacAddict put up an interview with Roger Black from their August 2000 issue. There are a couple of interesting points as in his take on transitioning from print to web:
"I think that the main thing is pretty much to work as you would in print design. A good designer always focuses on the reader or the customer, the viewer, whatever the end-user is. You just have to do that on the Net the same way you do in print.... I do not believe that the technological hurdles are that big. It doesn't seem to me that big of a deal.... Most of the stuff we do on the Web is not particularly difficult. Almost anybody, particularly anybody under thirty growing up in our society has enough technological culture to work with it. Don't get scared. It’s not that big of a deal."
