The Eventual Death of Software Developer Magazines

Software development magazines are losing ground compared to blogs, wikis… See Eric Sink’s post:

For a while it was fashionable to predict that the Web would eliminate publishing, or at least that it would eliminate magazine publishing. Ten years later, most of these pubs are still around. But there is obviously some truth here. Today’s developer-focused magazines are looking very sickly indeed. The health of a magazine is very closely correlated with its page count.

It’s 2013

i wonder… is JDJ http://java.sys-con.com/ still available in print form?

Some developer journals have survived. E.g. Heise’s iX https://abo.heise.de/ix-magazin/
