A decade ago paper magazines, many of them free and supported by grants or advertisers, were commonplace in the water industry.
Today the world is a different place, with a dramatically-changing print industry. At first content shifted to websites and blog posts, but recently technology has made it easier to deliver a magazine-style experience online.
For example, Water Online now has water and wastewater versions of a digital magazine. The latest wastewater edition includes helpful articles like a regulatory update and instrumentation pitfalls to avoid. It looks a lot like a print magazine, down to pages that appear to flip. Clicking on ads takes you straight to the manufacturer's website.
Digital magazines are portable, easily shareable, and environmentally-friendly? But, there are certainly times when they're less convenient and comfortable to read. And with it not sitting there catching your eye, do you even remember to read it?
We're curious. Are you enjoying digital magazines as much as you did paper? Are there still print versions that make it to your home or office? Leave a comment letting us know what you think!
