Sad, as it could've still been around had he stayed true to his original core reader. 1 issue per year dealing with catching a new person up on the lingo would have been fine, but every article??? Come on! I wish them the best as well as I was a BIG FAN until the recent years.
There is a rationale behind this. Some kinds of articles just can't be published in a paper-based article - the format is just too restrictive. No clickable links, for example (while, for example, my articles are full of linked, additional screenshots). The physical layout is also restrictive. Thinking about, for example, trying to put my 100 kbyte-long HTML charts into the paper version? No way.
