  • Hal, you're exactly right on both those issues -- the overly aggressive acquisitions and (of course) the internet. Too bad. 

    I wonder if anyone else here, like Hal, was getting the rosary beads ready.

  • Ed, just learned of that in twitter yesterday.  Yes I saw it coming, because Bonnier acquired too many independent titles in the years just before the recession and the move into online, now they are reaping the fallout.  Empires crumble.  But they still have many other viable titles.

  • I just learned that Caribbean Travel & Life will fold next year, merging into Islands Magazine. I didn't see this coming; did you?

  • I prepared a Seven Tips For New Thailand Travelers blog post on my website that would be useful to review. http://wp.me/p2A7tC-bP   I have traveled to Thailand many times and know the ins and outs especially because I have a Thai wife who has helped me as well.  :-)

  • Requesting Referral for Hotel & Spa PR contacts for Seoul.

    Will be there in Dec and would appreciate a helping hand with contacts and content for upcoming article on wellness travel in Korea.

    Thank you!
