Dear readers,

There is no denying that digital technology is revolutionizing the world. But in the back of my mind I have some questions. Will hardcopy print products be around in the future? Or will we get rid of them? If not, why not? I found the answer I was looking for at Magnet Canada’s Magazine Conference last month. “If the print magazine did not exist, we would invent this product. Because nothing that we do in media engages people in the same way that print products do,” Ken Hunt, a publisher at Toronto Life magazine told us during his presentation. I share with him the same passion for this traditional form of communication, even as I learn to adapt to the “internet of things.”
