The Web is Dead. It’s All Over the Web.

The Web is Dead. It's All Over the Web.

 As Ryan Tate puts it: “Wired Says ‘The Web is Dead’— On Its Increasingly Profitable Website.”

“Wired released its cover story package first to the Web, on Wired.com. You won’t find it in Wired’s iPad edition, and it’s not out in print yet. The death of the web might be the ‘inevitable course of capitalism, but it apparently pays better to deliver that news via a dying medium.”

“Revenue is up at Wired’s profitable website this year …. Yet Anderson … writes that most Web publishers haven’t been able to ‘reverse the hollowing-out trend of analog dollars turning into digital pennies… and by the looks of it there’s no light at the end of that tunnel .’ That tunnel being the one Wired, itself, is not in, apparently.”

“At the same time, circulation — and thus revenue, almost surely — are down for Wired’s iPad edition, which was approaching (and possibly even surpassing) 100,000 copies for the debut issue but has since fallen off — to less than a fourth of what it was, one source claims.”

“Is the web really dead?” Rob Beschizza, BoingBoing.net

“No, Wired, the Web is not ‘dead,'” Rob Pegoro, Washington Post.

“What’s Wrong With ‘X Is Dead,'” Alexis Madrigal, The Atlantic.
