Print media is dead.

Well, it's dying. Writing is on the wall. Flat, 2 dimensional media is boring and old.

Hyper Interactive Media is the future. Many years ago, when PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) released an interactive DVD version of The Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving, the future of media was revealed in practice. With the density and popularity of eReaders, iPad, off brand tablets....we now have the delivery platform for this new concept.

I can't wait for the next generation of magazines to take off. I'd love to see a digital sailing magazine for my iPad, full of hyperlinks, animations, videos, music....imagine what all can go into it....like an interactive TV program and magazine and sales brochure and ???? all rolled into one.

Very exciting time.....what is to come.....and it's close....
