I’ve written before about my love for the Economist. One of the reasons I stated before were their irreverent titles/illustrations/covers. As a social media aficionado, I had to share this amazing cover. This will hopefully tickle you as much as it did me 🙂 [apologies for the poor resolution, this is the best quality cover I could find on the Economist website – the main blocks of text that you can’t see are, on the TV: “news breaketh”; on the wall, from left to right: “Pitt the Younger on Tumblr”, “Gratis Wye-Fye”, and “Marie Antoinette’s Blog: New Cake Recipe”; pamphlets towards the bottom right from top to bottom: “Wikye Leakes Latest: Josephine Bonaparte’s emails”, “Tea Party Gazette: Bachmann Doth Rock”, and “Chronic Times”]
I particularly like the “gratis wye fye” and the “Wikye-Leakes Latest: Josephine Bonaparte’s emails” :-).
On a more substantive note, the special report on the future of news which inspired the cover was quite interesting and I’d recommend any one who’s interested in the future of journalism and the news business to take a look.
