Sad State of Print Publishing for Developers

Erik Sink:

I was just shocked that this magazine exists. I mean really. An entire print publication for people who raise chickens as a hobby? That’s what I call a niche. How does the publisher survive?

More to the point, how can this magazine be successful when Dr. Dobb’s looks like it might be pushing up daisies sometime before the World Series is over? Dr. Dobbs is arguably the most prestigious developer magazine in our industry, but it hasn’t been looking any too healthy over the last year or so.
