LA Magazine's Sad Site
This LAist poster, like many other Angelenos, subscribes to Los Angeles Magazine. It's well-written and just a tad snarky -- the way we like things around here.
But let's talk about the magazine's website, shall we? It's quite sad, really. The site has had an "under construction" banner for years, it seems, and no sign of when the new version will launch. For a magazine that represents a city at the forefront of entertainment and media, the static site is embarrassing. Right now, they've posted the cover of the latest issue, with three stories underneath it. Wow...that's so...1995?
If you check out other city magazines -- Boston, New York and even San Francisco -- Los Angeles isn't even in the same league. We're right up there with Fresno -- and even that's close.
