Magazine Me LII

Looks like Seed magazine, which posits that science is culture, may soon -- or not so soon -- face some competition. Not only is there the journal Acumen, which seems to have gone AWOL online since Jason Pontin jumped to the Technology Review, there's the forthcoming Galileo.

Charter subscribers to the new title from the Economist Group, of which I am one, recently received a letter indicating the launch may be even more forthcoming than previously believed. "We received an excellent response to our subscription offer, confirming the appeal of the magazine," writes biz-dev director Matthew Batstone. "However, launching a magazine is a major project and there still a few more steps we must take before Galileo becomes a reality."

Can we say, "Delay"?
