Inside Outside Southwest magazine hits the information superhighway

Inside Outside Southwest magazine, which just celebrated its 10th anniversary in November, is now leaping into the 21st century with the launching of an active and interactive on-line version of the magazine this morning.

Inside Outside has had a website since its earliest incarnation, but until today that site consisted of just links to copies of each issue's stories. The website launched today will feature expanded versions of stories featured in the print version of the magazine, as well as stories and columns exclusive to the InsideOutsideMag.com. The website will also (soon) offer a searchable database of all the magazine's issues back to its birth in 1998.

InsideOutsideMag.com will also constantly have fresh and updated stories, including news updates, a regional calendar, webcams, and blogs from both long-time and first-time Inside Outside Southwest writers.

[Including, yes, in the interest of full disclosure, yours truly, in the form of the blog The Monkey Wrench Dad. (In case anyone cares, the column I've been writing for for IOSW since 2001, Neanderthal Crossing, is ending -- the last Neanderthal Crossing is in the current issue.)]

The print version of Inside Outside will still be available around the Four Corners. Instead of coming out bimonthly, though, the print magazine will now be a smaller but more frequent publication, with a new issue every month.

The February issue -- the first of the revamped magazine -- is available now.
