The marriage of Newsweek and The Daily Beast ("NewsBeast"?) is a great example of journalism's hybrid future. I'm looking forward to watching Tina balance and blend what she describes as the "more reflective narrative rhythm" of magazines with "the fast, furious, instant take of the Web."

It only took another 40 years for this. Good luck, NewsBeast. Have a rockin' long honeymoon! How are you raising the kids, print or digital? (This week also saw the launch of HuffPost Divorce.
