If there IS a return of the magazine somehow, I wouldn't mind contributing every now and then in some way.

You guys are still thinking old school instead of new school. Here's a question: What happened to other magazines when their print versions folded? It most certainly isn't going the PDF route.

Only other discontinued-from-print magazines I've followed are Dungeon & Dragon Magazines, which are now online subscription pdfs.

I would be interested in it. I think reading things online is easier anyway. Saves a tree!

I would be glad to help if it's needed.

*goes to look for D&D magazines online now*

K, I <3 you and all but you sound a little tantrum-ish. What exactly is "the trend of new media"? Inform me.

I remember when those Dims PDFs of which we speak first came out... I held my breath that Dimensions would be reborn in digital form... After three years passed, I stopped holding my breath because I turned blue and almost died... Those PDFs came out about eight (?) years ago. Seriously, regardless of where the new media is headed... I wouldn't get too excited about this happening anytime soon. :p

I think it would be great to have a pdf magazine. One thing I used to appreciate about the old print magazine was the depth of the content. Forums are great, but they only give us instant content--not articles or interviews that reflect on important issues. It would be great to have that again.

Zinio's not the way to go. It's print layout regurgitated in digital format. and yeah yeah yeah, I'll give you an honest-to-goodness critique of your interface, Conrad. I just haven't had the time. The forum isn't the design problem, btw. This is actually standard.

It could def. be used to promote serious discussion and longer term in-depth reportage. Well, at least something more than what a forum can offer.

I didn't say it's the way to go, only that they're doing quite well. At this point I do not think anyone has the answer on how, and in what form, content will be distributed in the future. As for yeah, yeah, yeah... you offered.

catay,
New Adobe PDFs are not your momma's PDFs.

PDFs don't need to be solely a digitized representations of paper. They can be much more. Adobe Acrobat 9 is completely party to the buzz term "new media." Interactivity, video, dynamic shared content, etc. It's all there. The beauty of it (and always has been), it's a universally accessible format for anyone with Reader.
