New Yorker

I don't know how this slipped by my notice, but it seems they're selling the complete "New Yorker" on DVD-ROM for about $60. It takes up 50GB, and even if it's a waste of money and even if I will never look at it, I snatched one up. At the very least, they stopped selling "The Complete National Geographic" because the mag was sick of fending off lawsuits over rights issues filed by various writers. "The New Yorker" has deeper pockets, but still.

Anyway, the cartoons alone are worth it, and the magazine even teases an old essay about the birth of television. No doubt the tip of the iceberg, and certainly the start of a fallback toward mass illiteracy.
