Padma Lakshmi: ‘Top Chef’ Profile
“It was only because Helmut Newton happened to find me and happened to love scars that all of a sudden everybody wanted me for their fashion shows, and everyone wanted me in short sleeves, so you could tell it was me,” she reflects, tearing off a piece of the voluminous dosa. “It took another person who had power to look at me another way, to give me permission, that that was even available to me.”

The Queer Generation Gap
This is an acknowledgment of that resentment, of the eye rolling and the snickering with which we respond to the youth (ah, youth!). In the end we are not judging you for being empowered. We are judging ourselves for not being empowered enough.

We are bearing witness to a profound moment in black culture, Aperture shows - Los Angeles Times
“First, in general, just even the idea of storytelling — the aesthetics, the accent, and the structure of storytelling still has to operate in the empire of this Eurocentric America. America is really European aesthetics. In general, the vocabulary of America is a white supremacist vocabulary and Europe lives in America with all of us being the ambassador and emissary of its vocabulary. My struggle is not only what I want to tell, but it is the very form of storytelling that I am in constant struggle with.”

Culture magazine provides powerful brand extension for newspaper
I believe the lesson learned is that brand extension is not only about capitalising on your brand, but also about using the new product to strengthen the mother brand. If the brand extension does not support or strengthen the mother brand in any way, you should probably not launch the product. The target should therefore always be both gaining commercial success and strengthening the mother brand and your market position.

NSFW: On the Internet, Nobody Knows You’re A Journalist
No-one – absolutely no-one – knew they were looking for Seymour Hersh’s expose of Abu Ghraib, but by God did they pay attention when it appeared in the pages of the New Yorker.

(In the unlikely event that a writer at AOL or Yahoo had stumbled across the Abu Ghraib story, the throw-up-the-facts-and-iterate-later culture of web editorial would have slain it in the womb. Also: who buys banner ads against prisoner abuse photos? Maybe if it were a slideshow…)

Moreover, as the scramble for advertiser dollars continues to take its toll online, there exists a real opportunity for old-fashioned editorial curation to thrive on other platforms, both old and new. The joy I felt today flicking through the New Yorker – stumbling across Tad Friend’s wonderful piece about Lenny Bruce tribute actor, Steve Cuiffo and a short story by Woody Allen (Woody Allen!) before reaching the Armstrong profile – was easily the highlight of my day.

New Yorker web editor: The site is “guided by what’s on paper” » Nieman Journalism Lab » Pushing to the Future of Journalism
The most telling change, though, is as much about philosophy as it is about design. On the re-launched site, “we put less of the magazine online than we used to,” Eskin says. It’s a choice that will likely become more common as The New Yorker’s fellow outlets make key decisions about paid content. “Especially now that ‘Information wants to be free’ is no longer an article of faith — we wanted to tell our paying subscribers that they can access everything,” he says. “And to tell our non-paying visitors that there’s a lot that they’re missing.”

december 2010 by allaboutgeorge My iPad Magazine Stand
[...] Social media, if it’s not already obvious to everyone, is going to continue to change everything — including publishing. And it’s a no-brainer to me that content consumption is going to be intimately if not inextricably linked with your social graph. Combine Flipboard or whatever comes along and improves upon it with the real innovation in recommendation technology that we’ll almost undoubtedly see in the next few years, and I can’t see how the 20th Century concept of a magazine can survive, even if it does look great on a tablet.

Hugh Hefner has been good for us - Roger Ebert's Journal
You may believe Playboy was the enemy of women. It objectified their bodies. It schooled men to regard them as sex objects. It stood for all that feminists fought to correct. There is some truth to that, but it doesn't impact upon my experience, and the best I can do here is be truthful.

Nobody taught me to regard women as sex objects. I always did. Most men do. And truth to tell, most women regard men as sex objects. We regard many other aspects of another person, but sex is the elephant in the room. Evolution has hard-wired us that way. When we meet a new person, in some small recess of our minds we evaluate that person as a sex partner. We don't act on it, we don't dwell on it, but we do it. You know we do. And this process continues bravely until we are old and feeble.

A magazine for gay men in the Arab world | PRI.ORG
The name of the magazine is "Mithly" -- a new Arabic term for gay. It comes from the root "mithl," meaning "alike, similar." Existing Arabic words for homosexual are all pejorative, "lothi" from the story of Lot in the Bible, and the word "shaath." [...] The editor says it was important to come up with an Arabic word, rather than just using the Western term gay, to emphasize that gay men in the Arab world are part of society. For many gay Arab men, that inclusion is taking place online.

Luxury fashion magazines, particularly those with an iconic photo library like Vogue, are a natural fit for the microblog.

Jezebel: The Day I Trailed A Paparazzo
"He comes out at eight," Wagner says. It's 7:45 am on Friday, and we're part of a small group gathered across the street from the apartment building where Michael Douglas lives. Everyone is a paparazzo except for me.
I'd been trying to shadow a paparazzo for a while, to get a behind-the-scenes look at the juggernaut of today's "celebrity" industry. When it comes to celebrity "news," more and more, paparazzi pictures — a candid image of a celebrity doing something — are all the "news" consists of. But how much do we know about where these images come from?

Why Media Companies Shouldn't Accept Apple's Subscription Plans (by @baekdal) #publishing
You are no longer selling newspapers; you are selling news. Content that cannot be limited to specific devices.

The job for media companies is to make highly valuable news articles, and monetized that in a way that doesn't limit, but enables.

For subscriptions that means; one subscription = use everywhere.

Not Apple's, "subscribe to an iPad only version, and give us 30%, loose direct contact with your audience."

My suggestion to the companies currently in talks with Apple is simple. If you cannot convince Apple to allow you to use your own subscription models, in your own apps, forget about the App store.

Create an amazing rich-media HTML5 web app instead, and use offline storage to allow people to read it on the go.

Tyler Brûlé, Media Maverick - BusinessWeek
"People are intrigued by how we manage to charge 50 percent more for subscriptions," he says. "Partly, the subscription gives people access to some Monocle extras, the website archive, and so on. But it is really based on the idea that people want to belong to something that says something about them. ... People will choose what denim they want to wear, and they will choose what newspaper they want to buy, and they want other people to be aware of that, too. Until an iPad is backlit, no one will have any idea that you read Der Spiegel or the Guardian or whatever."

To back this belief, Brûlé is planning a one-off newspaper in the summer full of essays and reportage, all printed on luxurious paper. "[...] Would you take an iPad to the beach? To the pool? No. It's too precious. You can leave your newspaper on your towel and no one will nick it. And the thing about good newsprint is that it actually gets more tactile with a bit of sun and moisture."

Jazz Columns: Thelonious Monk: Ode To A Sphere — By Vijay Iyer — Jazz Articles
[...] When Monk played someone else’s music, he would recast it in this sonic language. His versions were the result of painstaking labor. Each harmony was seemingly rebuilt from scratch, chosen with care and worked over, and every ornament, filigree, run and fill carefully considered. And yet the playing was also full of risk. You can’t help but notice the liveness of it, the sense of possibility and discovery, the chances taken and the rewards reaped.

That risk lies somewhere in the dialogue between rhythm and improvisation—in the sustained buoyancy of pulse that is his signature, and in the real-time melodic invention that forms a counterpoint to it. [...]

Bruce Handy on Mad Men |
“I’m not avoiding answering the question, but I’m doing something that I do a lot, which is avoiding saying, ‘I don’t know.’ And that’s from my family—it’s really bad to get caught not knowing something. I hope I’ll know when I get there. When I started the show, when I had the inkling of the idea, I thought, What was it like for people to go through this [historical period]? It wasn’t a loss of innocence, but things really did change. There was some shit falling apart, as much as there was in the 1930s. Hopefully we don’t have to experience that again, but to come out on the other side and, you know, What does Don look like when Kent State happens? I would kind of like to know that.”

Advertising - Predicting a Shift in Communications Spending -
An interesting shift occurred in 2008, the report said. For the first time, consumers spent more time with media they paid for, like books or cable television, than with primarily ad-supported media, like newspapers and magazines.

“It’s not that people aren’t willing to pay for content, because they are paying for video games, fantasy sports information, music downloads,” Mr. Rutherfurd said. “There’s just some content they’re not willing to pay for.”

Contemplating the Consumerist sale and the adpocalypse
In conclusion, the online advertising experiment in which so many of us have engaged is really only ten years or so old. Those who say that it's "mature" are not only mistaken, but they drastically underestimate what a true break the web is from the offline media that came before. We've had a few hundred years to learn to monetize print, over 75 years to monetize TV, and, most importantly, millennia to build business models based on scarcity. In contrast, our collective effort to monetize post-scarcity digital media have only just begun.
