Here are some interesting magazines to take a look at (although,
when you search the Internet, you will find FREE electronic journals,
newsletters and magazines to read; some of these are originals,
others are electronic reprints such as Mother Jones:
- CompuServe Magazine, published monthly for the past
dozen years, available with membership but otherwise at $:10 a year.
Recent topics have included online volunteerism (donating computer
know-how), personal information managers (PIMS) and hooking up to
computers, perfecting customized databases, investment guides and
mutual funds, fan clubs and pets. It tries to explain how to use
CompuServe and what new materials are available: how to get the
most bang for your electronic buck. Many reader tips and advice
are very helpful.
- Information Highways (monthly) " the magazine
for consumers of strategic electronic information", formerly
known as Database Canada(e-mail: email@example.com; snail
mail: 162 Joicey Blvd., Toronto, Ontario, M5M 2V2). Under its new
name, the first issue (October 1993) covered "electronic"
press clipping services and their future, as well as Free-Nets.
Bonnie Burwell and Jim Carroll are regular columnists. There are
reviews of new electronic sources and service enhancements, product
comparisons, tips and advice, updates from the government and various
sound-offs. But at $98 a year (plus GST). I'm going to read it at
- Internet World; the magazine and review for internet
users(Meckler Corporation, 11 Ferry Lane West Westport. CT 06880;
e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) was previously a newsletter. This bimonthly
started in September 1993, and costs US $29. It has news, announcements
of upcoming workshops, lots of advertising for books about the Internet
and even lots of leading. Articles here concerned teenagers and
the Internet, the disabled, the Boston Computer Society, hooking
up to the Internet, training people, and resources on the Internet
for learning about the Internet. Worth a look, at least for its
tips and advice.
