Last Christmas, Brooke and I decided that The Complete New Yorker was the present we would buy for ourselves, and it will undoubtedly keep us occupied for the next thousand years or so. How happy I was, then, to discover that MAD magazine also has a complete archive available on DVD. I think this is a fabulous idea, and I can’t understand why more magazines haven’t done this yet. Where are you, Harper’s and The Atlantic? And although National Geographic came out on about a hundred CD-ROMs a few years ago, where’s the DVD update? In fact, here’s a list of magazines I’d love to have as DVD archives:
- The Atlantic
- National Geographic
- Popular Science
Have you got any favourites I’ve missed?
