Since the last Bitcoin Weekly thread is getting a bit stale, I decided to start a new update thread.

Current Ransom Thread: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=23934.0

In other news, we now have a comic archive but beware that the navigation system for comics may change rapidly and the comic archive's location may be changed.

If you visit the comics link, it will direct you to the latest comics in the Bitcoin Weekly's comic archive. For a full list of comics to read, you can click on the comics archive at the bottom of each comic page.

Also, if you have any comment about the magazine, don't hesitate to give us a shoutout.

It seems that bitcoinweekly is down. However, I only have one hour to investigate. Expect Bitcoin Weekly to be back up tommorrow at the latest.

No, it didn't. It's just that we don't update frequently in the first place. At best, we updated 3 times a week.

New article, successfully ransomed.

In the future, we will release all articles by ransom. Also, there will be more incentives as sponsors may give you discounts and deals.

I really don't agree with this ransom system and I think it will effect the writers words knowing a system like this is in place.  I'm trying to find the start of how this system came into place or why, I swear I seen a thread about this not long ago, but I guess I'll ask here, why ransom an article?

Also, I am only against the ransom of an article in theory, it may in the end be something that pays off for the reader, writer, and publisher.  But right now I do not only see how the reader can have a price put on information that they could possibly already know.   Will this not hinder new readership?  I'm kind of put off and I'm already a viewer (but I am open minded, curious if this is how a payment for journalists doing freelance it Bitcoin could be worked out).   Is there any other sites that offer a ransom type system for articles?

We need to raise revenue. Advertising doesn't cut it anymore.

The archive is free for readers to read forever. Once the articles are released from ransom, they are also free to read forever. Ransom is the least worst way of hindering readership. IF it was possible to keep the magazine free, I would...however, my writers and cartoonists gottach eat, and my magazine does too, to keep itself afloat.
