What kinds of magazines do you read? Routers/servers/networking/webhosting/internet ? Do you still read printed media? If yes - what do you read. If no - what do you read instead? List specific examples and the country you are from.

I mean to ask specific magazine names that you know and read. Linux Journal no longer is printed. So what else?

From Nigeria,

I read professional magazines - Networking/Routers/servers/webhosting/internet mostly wnen I have challenges. Daily I have to read about four diffrent newspapers, read my bible, read laughable jokes apart from overseeing my business. Once in a while, I read inspirational books like Brain Tracy, Life Skill etc to restrategize my business. Also, as soon as i heard of any new release or Idea in IT, I go through it. Finally, I like reading intersting posts in technological forums.

I dont read magazines as well. I learned nothing from magazines even books until today. They are misinforming.
For example one of this magazine wrote that, wireless signals doesn't reached to even 100 meters nowadays.

I spend my most time reading mikrotik forum. That's I need...

Ukraine.

I used to read "Компьютерное обозрение" in the past, but they discontinued printed version about a year or so ago. Online version is here http://ko.com.ua/. I don't read it regularly these days, but I know a lot of people here are still following this publication.

I also follow news feed on the http://www.opennet.ru/.

Dell and HP marketing emails.

Networkworld.com and a bunch of blogs like mikrotik-routeros.com and Greg Sowell's

Sponsoring NOG meets is probably a good way to get visibility with your target market

We sometimes attend the regular monthly meetings in Oxford, England called "Oxford Geek Nights". English pub full of geeks, free beer (usually from Google), a lot of talking about IT, technical micro-presentations (some only lasting a few minutes), socialising and meeting new people in technical world. But mostly computing and internet related.

http://oxford.geeknights.net

Don't read books or magazines on technology any more.

Now, if you wanted to sponsor some free beer.... I can possibly arrange something! lol

In the US:
Linux Journal still has it's place as my offices "light" reading material.

For online reading:
Reddit.com/r/networking
Reddit.com/r/sysadmin

For listening in the car:
packetpushers.net, although they do focus a bit too hard on datacenter-only solutions and tend to forget about the ISP / Enterprise networking guys.

This saddens me greatly. It also makes me realize I apparently need to get back to the office more often. Oh well, at least I still have a back-log of them to work on.
In that case, no, I don't have a still-publishing paper news source for networking information.

I read IEEE Spectrum magazine, which is included in the dues of all IEEE members worldwide.
While not at all restricted to networking, there is usually some article that includes topics in networking.

I do not read blogs and online publications regularly, but only when I'm looking for some particular topic that I need to research.

'Wired' is the only techy magazine I read now.
Do you still read printed media?
Very rarely.
If yes - what do you read. If no - what do you read instead?
I don't tend to read an awful lot of publications. Having a good network of tech-heads on Twitter and in the unofficial Routerboard IRC channel (see below) mean that word-of-mouth is the way I find out about things.

After making it back to the office after a few months to find a stack of magazines on my desk, it turns out I was thinking of Linux Pro magazine. We switched over from Linux Journal when they quit doing print.

I guess paper magazines are pretty "dead" nowadays. Well atleast not the same they used to be.

I myself read only forums, blogs and other online publications.

Reddit.com/r/networking to recommend one.
