    Thank the Lord that someone wrote this piece! I work in digital and still strongly believe that print will never die, but will require a tie in wiith digital. I do think that lots of publications panic when faced with lower circulation and decide to quickly grasp tried and tested (and hated) methods of digital strategy to supplement their content. Print needs to stick around, because the quality of content that it offers can be adapted to digital, and be successful!
