Emily Gordon Asks How Old Mags Get Totally Webbylicious

NewYorker_375_4.jpg

As we’ve noted previously, mags like The New Yorker and Harper’s have suddenly discovered the internet, with some overall excellent results. Print editor Emily Gordon goes behind the web to find out how publications read by dinosaurs find their way online. “The 2.0 of the Town” includes interviews with webmasters from The Nation, Scientific American and Harpers, as well as New Yorker.com designers Winterhouse (their very early sketch of the new New Yorker homepage is above).

We ‘specially like how Gordon gets to indulge her deepest obsession–she pens the New Yorker-focused blog Emdashes.
