My friend and former colleague Colleen Fisher Tully, web food editor at Canadian Living, was recently interviewed by the people at Good Food Revolution about her job and making these work between print and web. I thought you’d enjoy the video for a look inside life as a web editor.

The video can be viewed here.

I recently subscribed to GQ on my iPad and took screenshots of each step in the process so you could have a look. The last image is of the confirmation email I received.

Nice, Self. See that at the bottom of the first image? A tappable web throw in Self’s iPad edition. A built-in form would be cool, too. And below that, the second image shows a live Twitter feed built into the design. Readers can tweet their reaction with the appropriate hashtag and it will show up. (Not sure if it’s being moderated but there’s a lot of spam potential here – thought it won’t happen until numbers are high enough.)

Gimmicky? Maybe a little. But this is what we’re talking about when we say it’s important to be part of the web with digital editions, not just on the web.
