Anne Hays wrote an open letter to The New Yorker, and posted it on Facebook
, complaining about the gender imbalance in bylines. The Village Voice
and two bloggers
respond. The CBC spent an hour
on it this morning.
Every issue of the New Yorker on a portable hard drive.
For $299 you get an 80GB hard drive loaded with every article, poem, short story, advertisement and lame cartoon that has appeared in the over 4,000 issues of The New Yorker Magazine since February, 1925.
The vintage ads alone MIGHT be worth it (depending on res/format) but does anyone really WANT every one of those unfunny cartoons? Does anyone outside NYC even care that this magazine is still being published?
