LAS VEGAS, NV (Autodesk University), Dec 2, 2009 - Cadalyst magazine was back in print form with a December issue. Issues were being given away for free at AU but the plan is to sell future issues for $10. The magazine will be published quarterly.
Cadalyst used to be free for most subscribers and published monthly. It has been a tumultuous period for Cadalyst staff. Cadalyst was reduced to an issue every 2 months last year as a cost saving attempt, then abandoned by Questex Media earlier this year. Led by Seth Nichols, who formed Longitude Media, its current publisher, and Nancy Johnson, editor in chief, it has survived since then as a online publication.
Response from AU show floor has been positive, according to Nancy. Several people have said "I'll buy it," she tells me.
The magazine is available for $9.99 plus $2.25 for shipping -- if you are in the US. Foreign readers had better have really missed their magazine -- they have to pay a hefty $71 for shipping. "The price only helps pay for our print costs," says Seth.
