kara: i had a dream i had an ipad and was a reading a magazine on it and it was awesome

kara: sadly, i hear magazines are so far not awesome on the ipad

eric: yeah

eric: people are still figuring it out

eric: guess it started off better than the web though

eric: early web pages were hilarious

kara: true

kara: i mean, i should be able to switch to ‘paperless’ subscriptions on my current magazines, just like i can opt out of paper statements for my credit card and other bills

eric: haha, the publishing industry is so far away from being able to figure that out

eric: the whole thing is like this incredibly brittle porcelain vase being propped up by lots of crossed fingers & old money
