Fondle this…

Sara, my 20 year old daughter, while in school, has been working the past couple of years as an intern at Los Angeles Magazine, doing what all interns do…run for coffee and do photo shoots and run for more coffee.

This is a girl as technologically connected as anyone in her generation. But – she’s gotten the print bug and plans to find work (scarce as it may be) in the publishing business. She’s partial to Seattle or New York…her Dad is in denial.

What I think we’ve come to realize is that digital distribution denies us fondling – the tactile feel of a printed publication. Glossy 80 pound stock or newsprint yellowing before your eyes…it’s all part of absorbing – I’d say part of the communication – from the tactile experience. Digital ain’t got it…

If you’ve ever just printed something to read it, instead of reading it on screen, you fondle too…
