Usually not more than a teaser, business articles and publications online are generally pretty shallow (except if it concerns Bill Gates). However, a lot of them contain a gem or two of new information which just might trigger a creative nerve and a few of them really have a lot to offer.

This situation will change, but not without discomfort. With the cost of postage rising and more effective and considerably less expensive promotional opportunities on the internet horizon, advertisers are likely to reduce their print budgets.

Nevertheless, there will always (am I digging myself a hole here?) be a need for something to read on the john or a (now I'm really digging a hole) commuter train. Well - another tree saved. Maybe. Maybe not.

When the internet overtakes print media, you better have a sense of humor when you go to the mail box for another AOL disk.
