bookofjoe wrong about Chow magazine: 'I give this magazine a less than 1% chance of getting to year two'

Bjhjjhjhjhjkhjk

I wrote those words on November 5, 2004, in a post about the inaugural issue (above) of Chow.

I'm man enough to admit it when I'm wrong and I was wrong about Chow.

It lasted 14 months, two months into its second year, before giving all the appearances of going belly–up last week.

Barbara Fisher of the Paper Palate wrote, on January 26, "Chow... has sent email out to subscribers noting that it will be at least six months before another issue arrives, because they are taking a break in order to raise enough funds to keep the magazine going without another interruption."

Huh.

She continued, "The first issue of the magazine came out in November of 2004; then, though it was meant to be a bimonthly magazine, the Wall Street Journal reported in May 2005 that, due to the lack of investors, the second issue did not appear until June 2005."

Jane Goldman, the founder and editor of Chow, offers her thoughts on her current plight in a comment at the very bottom of this page.

So far the magazine has managed to put out four issues in its 14 months of existence.

Hey — I'm as fallible as the next guy.
