'webzines were killing print zines for a while, because it was cheaper, easier...'

“I have very little respect for webzines. I think that’s partially because webzines were killing print zines for a while, because it was cheaper, easier, and required less active networking and work. I think it’s too easy to throw something up on the internet and let it stagnate there. i don’t respect the internet medium. Also, due to the popularity of the net in recent years, most of the time when I throw around the word ‘zine symposium, people think I’m talking exclusively about webzine and have no concept of print zines. Granted, there are well done webzines (like sincerebrutality.com) that really could change my opinion, if there were just more of them that were done and had that much time put into them.”
