A couple years ago, few people were predicting the current economic crisis. In fact, it seemed like an excellent time to launch a high-profile business magazine, and Portfolio was able to gather an amazing amount of editorial talent. The magazine itself was gorgeous while it lasted, but it was closed suddenly after an all-too-brief run. In fact, I only noticed this insert in my latest issue of Wired Magazine after Portfolio was already gone. The laptop bag does seem like an ideal gift with subscription for this magazine, though.
According to Newsweek, over 140 magazines have failed so far this year. Perhaps it’s time to send the remaining advertisers a little thank you gift as well.
