You might have better luck if you do PDF or HTML.

Additional suggestion:

Make previous issue available for free to download. New issue will cost some bitcoin.

Previous issue will advertise how great the magazine is.

Or, if not all the back issues at least a few of them.

(I know, right now there are none)

Yeah, that will probably happen and the latest 2 would cost, lets see if we can get enough interest in the first place. Smiley

Well, I am more concerned about getting actual feedback from the people who already bought it. Smiley
I am right now on my school's network so I won't risk the auths over a cleartext HTTP transmission.

I will soon set up an SSH tunnel so I can get to work more often.(This is also a school issued latop; think "Little Brother")

There needs to be more content. Ideas:
- A summary of all recently-launched Bitcoin sites.
- Economic articles.
- Speculation/fiction about the future of Bitcoin.

I didn't learn much from the interview because most of that information is already on the wiki. An article based on the interview would have been more interesting.

Yeah, well, I can sure include the next issue for free for anyone that bought the first one. :/ Honestly I got some bidas though they are worthless without the content. The only one that step up for the challenge was kiba and got paid the BTC he asked for.

There is a new bid/article submission deadline for the next issue if anybody would be interested in a community driven magazine.

I think you should ditch the whole community driven idea altogether. If your editorship is any good, it will show in your magazine. Plus you don't have to keep score/keep track. You review article and send feedback to the writer.

One month is too long for the magazine. It should be more like 1 week between issues. Also, I don't think this is going to dilute the quality of articles at all as long as you make your decision based on merits, rather than deadline. If the article didn't get through, the writer can resubmit in the next cycle. There should be no artificial number of articles per issue limit. This is not paper.

Well, it's my first interview article and I am still a beginner freelance writer. Plus, I was the only person who actually wrote anything for bitcoin.

You have reason, I am making the changes. I would really love to see more articles coming. Cmon if they get past the judges I can promise you some BTC + royalties. xD

Would you publish a series of general purpose articles about computation and cryptography, that lead to explaining the way bitcoin woks ?

Also, do you pay a few bitcoins in advance or just in royalties ?

sweet idea, I agree you should make it weekly and get rid of the judges. Will report back soon, I'm waiting for my client to get connections then I will pay and download.

edit: just finished reading it, it was kind of sparse on content but very enjoyable and pretty good. I like the whole state of bitcoin in the first part, maybe that could be done every issue? My only suggestion is more content and more frequent releases. Other than that, rock on!
