Print is Dead? Someone better tell Bessie.
By: Ronald Lindeboom on Mar 18, 2009 at 4:32:32 pm

I keep reading publishers bemoaning the state of the publishing world and decrying the fact that print is dying. They quote statistics that back up their suppositions and while these "facts" appear true, I have to scratch my head and wonder why they cannot seem to see the forest for all the dead trees they have proffered over the years. Why is print dying? Well, I hate to tell them, it's not -- it's their magazines and view points that are dying. There are other magazines, of which Creative COW Magazine is one example, that are doing very well and are...

Mexico Goes to China - Part 2 of 2
By: Noah Kadner on Apr 23, 2008 at 3:38:36 pm

I wrote two articles for the Final Cut Pro User's Group Supermeet at NAB. They appeared in the SuperMag magazine(which I named btw). Here's part two of the first article looking at an Apple network system that is being used at the Beijing Olympics this summer in China. For part one click here. ...

Creating print magazines in the Age of the Internet
By: Ronald Lindeboom on Jan 22, 2008 at 10:55:05 am

It always strikes me as odd that here we are in 2008, still relying on print to communicate many of the same ideas that are found in-depth on the web. Why? Is the immediacy of the web -- along its powerful information sources like Google and (to name just two) -- simply not enough? Tim Wilson and I talk about this phenomenon from time-to-time and we think that it's one that shows why Creative COW Magazine has become so popular among its readership; a readership that grows daily and is already equal to that of many magazines that have...

Before I begin my foray into the world of blogging I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to Ron & Tim for their efforts in getting me situated with the Cow. I look forward to the many blogs ahead and hope that some of you may find the information at least useful, and at best challenging. Although I have a fairly broad portfolio in the areas I write about, and areas researched, I believe that there are always some common factors or themes that run throughout the electronics, entertainment, tech, legal and economic communities - and the way in which...

Bessie gets classroom credit
By: Eric T. Bliss on Mar 27, 2007 at 10:16:41 pm

I got this lovely letter from Dave Gorrie about an article in the current issue of The Creative COW magazine by John Woody, about the cutting-edge lab at James Madison University. Dave graduated in 2000 and clearly did his homework! He cut over 1500 promos at The Discovery Channel, and has since started his own production business... - Hello Bessie! Thank you for publishing the article about the School of Media Arts and Design at James Madison University.  I m glad there are outlets like Creative Cow that help give insight into the challenges of industry educators and professionals alike.  Articles like the one written about the SMAD...

Magazine Article Correction - Re: YouTube & Flash
By: Aharon Rabinowitz on Mar 26, 2007 at 6:50:25 am

So, it appears YouTube Caught on to the tests that I and many others were doing to find the best FLV settings for YouTube. Up until recently, you were able to upload FLV s to You Tube without them messing with (i.e., compressing) your videos. Alas, they decided to change that. It s too bad too because you were able to get some really high-Qulaity video on line. Now they convert Flash FLV s too. Here are some samples of tests I did before it got shut down - hit more info by each video to see the settings I used: Medium Quality:...


The Curse of the Yellow Hammer
By: Christian Glawe on Mar 25, 2007 at 2:58:24 pm

We all know how techno-centric our industry is. And how quickly that technology changes. Simply keeping up with all the new capabilities, gear, workflows, software, platforms, etc. can be a full-time job. And gear is critical. We can t do our jobs without it, and we can t do our jobs *well* if we don t know how to best *use* that gear. But.... we re supposed to be creative artists, too. In fact, I d argue that those who find long-term success in this business aren t necessarily those with the most gear, but instead, those who can find...

Creative COW Magazine succeeds because it's an oddball
By: Ronald Lindeboom on Mar 9, 2007 at 2:16:46 pm

Well, the new issue of Creative COW Magazine is at the printer and should be run shortly. Hopefully, all the work that Tim Wilson and I put into it will open up some interesting discussions and get people to open their minds to the incredible opportunity that lies in front of them. It is not often that a market shift opens up as many opportunities as that which the rapidly accelerating world of mini-media is doing. We have tried to explore this new media opportunity from many differing vantage points. This, so that readers can examine how the principles may...

What the world needs - Rewritable Ink.
By: Eric Bliss on Mar 9, 2007 at 9:55:54 am

So, I was working on cleaning up my place the other day, and I was noticing yet again that I really need more room for all of my books, when I suddenly realized that wasn t what I actually need. What we need is a book that works like a hard drive. Imagine a new kind of printer for a moment. This printer doesn t just print out pages. You can also feed pages into it, which it will then make blank by pulling the ink off of them. Once it has blanked the pages, it will then print on...


A Tale of Magazines and the Year 2007: Who'd uh thunk it?
By: Ronald Lindeboom on Feb 28, 2007 at 3:55:29 am

As we get to the finish line on the new pre-NAB issue of Creative COW Magazine, the thought hit me this morning that this is really quite an amazing ride. When we started building web-based community sites back in June of 1995, we would not have dared dream that this would be happening in 2007. Or that we'd be doing as odd a thing as building a magazine and competing against the major publishing ventures in this industry. If someone had told us the future many years ago, we would have likely laughed. It's quite a strange thing to remember the...
