Maghound is a new website run by Time, Inc. that allows you to manage and modify your magazine subscriptions from a central location on a month-by-month basis. So you can cherry pick which issues you want to receive, or try out new magazines without risking a full year subscription. It was dubbed “The Netflix for magazines” over at the Freakonomics blog, and that’s an apt description for their tiered subscription model, which ranges from 3 to 8+ magazines per month.
Definitely seems like an interesting service that I would like to try given my love of magazines, especially in the internet age. Unfortunately, Maghound lacks the selection that makes a service like Netflix work: currently, The Economist, Monocle, The New Yorker, The Wire, Gastronomica, and Meatpaper are nowhere to be found.
Some of my artwork has been pretty anti-Bush, so maybe it was somewhat irresponsible for [The Atlantic] to hire me.
