The slow end to Popular Science magazine.

Jacob Ward, an NBC correspondent who worked at Popular Science for seven years and spent some time as editor-in-chief, shared some thoughts about the end of the 151-year-old magazine in a video on YouTube:

The magazine — like all magazines — was handed from owner to owner to owner over time and there was all things began to get lost... I got to the editor in chief position, and I just saw how this very beautiful, very historical, a real treasure of American popular intellectual publishing was kind of disposable in the minds of people who make money for living.
