March IEEE Spectrum 1/16-inch Thick

March 2013 IEEE Spectrum only 1/16" thick! - RF CafeAm I the only one who thinks the trade magazines have been getting thinner? The March 2013 edition of IEEE's spectrum magazine arrived today and it is only 1/16 inch British Library's Newspaper Storage Building computer racks (Spectrum) - RF Cafe(1.6 mm) thick! A lot of magazines are migrating toward online-only publication in order to save money. Online isn't free be any means, especially when you have to archive millions of pages of text and accompanying images. The thumbnail above shows the British Library's new Newspaper Storage Building that will archive every available issue of the newspaper dating back into the 1800s. A robot will retrieve hard copies to the requester. The room will be airtight and climatically controlled to preserve the papers and prevent fires. By contrast, a cluster of hard drives about the volume of my desk could probably hold the equivalent in digitized format.
