Gischeleman: "To Create With the Mind"


It’s Hard Out There For a Print


I refuse to say "print is dead" because I don’t believe it, but scenes like this closed used book store near downtown Boston say a lot about where media is headed.

Gradually, places where we got our print fix are being eroded as we get more online and these businesses become less viable.

The same goes for used record stores. Again, this is not death of a medium, but the limitations in the fringes are becoming more severe.

What evidence have you seen? Care to share?

    The bookstore in your photo, Commonwealth Books, isn’t closing for good; it’s moved to a location on Spring Lane in Downtown Crossing. More here:

    Just thought you should know, in case you were a fan of the Boylston location (as many Emerson College students are)!

    Thanks for deflating the point of my post!

    Kidding– thanks, I didn’t know that- just saw the closed location and reacted. Gosh, I hope my point is still valid.

    Wait, part of my point is people who say print is dead are idiots. So it’s all good
