Khoi Vin’s Take on Magazines & iPads: Worth Reading

Of course, small, nimble apps won’t necessarily solve the long-term revenue problems of major magazines. So is there a bigger solution for magazines, one that will bring in significant revenue along the lines of what they saw in the pre-digital world?

I especially like his point about the loss,during translation, of the social aspects of reading/sharing on the web. Most magazine apps i've seen are much, much more like CDRoms than something new. Gourmet Live is the best i've seen, primarily because its nothing like a magazine at all.
