Editors Note: Will it be more of the same? or will the new Editor in Chief change the publication? It will be interesting to see the direction that Landscape Architecture Magazine takes as traditional publishing  is a having a hard time during the Global Financial Crisis as advertising sales are down and loosing some readership to websites and social networking sites.
