Last years announcement that Hearst, Condé Nast, Time Inc, News Corporation and Meredith would join forces to create a new publishing standard has finally been given a name. The “iTunes of the magazine world” that they are hoping to create will be called Next Issue Media.
Not the most catchy or adventurous of names but the domain has been purchased and has a brief run down of what they hope to achieve plus contact details. Good luck to them, a great step forward in publishing. 2010 could really see this venture grow from strength to strength.
