As a member of the traditional (read: old) media, we at Citylife view new media with respect, awe, a smidgen of scorn, and more than a few hues of envy. The sheer reach of new media is a threat to our very existence.

From time to time I’ve thought about both giving up and giving in. Closing shop and painting landscapes in my home in the mountains sounds like a far less stressful life choice, and the seduction of being done with ink and moving the whole operation online, slashing overheads and expenses is appealing. But call me a purist (or an idiot), I still have great faith in the relevance of traditional media. I may sound like Candide’s Pangloss, but I genuinely believe that we are heading towards a comeback.

Hear me out.
