Thoughts on Tech, Deals, and Markets

Hard Times at Conde

My favorite magazine is the New Yorker.  I’m used to receiving emails from them regarding my subscription.  But today was a first–I received an email that was a pure third-party advertisement, in this case for a new Blackberry.   I don’t remember ever signing up to receive third-party advertisements on their behalf, so it’s surprising to get that type of email.  Particularly from a media company that has such high-end demographic.  On the other hand, given their financial difficulties, it’s understandable.

At the same time, this is a sign that email quality will suffer.  As media companies become more aggressive in emailing their lists, it will crowd inboxes and diminish the marginal value of extra email.
