Let’s do a little thought experiment for a minute.
Imagine a life without The Awl, The Huffington Post, the New York Times, Drudge Report, The Onion, The Toast, The Verge, or Vox.
Without Brain Pickings, Slate, FiveThirtyEight, Pitchfork, The Paris Review, Mental Floss, Vice, xoJane, ProPublica, Quartz, Marc and Angel, or Grantland.
You get the idea; I want you to imagine a life without your favorite online publications. A digital content ghost town. Got it?
Now my question for you is this: would your life be better or worse without these publications?
And be honest …
It’s a question you have to answer since a future without these publications is quite possible. Let me explain.
