Best of Mag News Around the Web, July 27-31
Welcome to another edition of our weekly round-up of the best stories about magazines and publishing scattered across the Internet.

Wired editor Chris Anderson's interview with Spiegel has already raised a number of virtual eyebrows; has Anderson gone off his rock and roller or is he just re-stating the obvious in a confrontational way? A great story about Canadian fashion mags in Media in Canada shows that our glossies aren't suffering in the same way as their southern sisters. And a survey done by the Magazine Publishers of America shows that Web-sourced subs are on the rise, even if they still make up the minority of aquisitions. All this, and more.
