I wonder if Roger at MemoryDealers knows anything-- he has the magazine listed for sale on his site.

I sent a e-mail about an ad.The next issue is fine if you are no longer accepting.

I would wait a bit before sending any btc... this guy took me for over 100 and i'v seen nothing in return.
I was suspicious one month ago when right after I gave him my email address I got a phishing email regarding mtgox. Maybe it was a coincidence.
That would've been a pretty stupid move, if he did that. It wouldn't be in line with setting up a convincing magazine scam*, so imo it's most likely a coincidence.

*I don't actually think it's a scam

*I don't actually think it's a scam
Do you really think he can deliver a 100+ page color magazine (even with ads) delivered for $6 with a small run? Unless he has some financial backers with a lot of publication experience, it is a dubious prospect. When he was asked about that, he was evasive.

[edit] I don't think it was a scam so much as maybe biting off too much at once. If it was a scam, it wasn't more than a few thousand dollars.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

From earlier in the thread:

*Putting my paranoid hat on*

What if this is all a big nothing, conspired by Matthew to steal all our coins?  He gets BTC from advertisers, and from people pre-ordering the magazine.  It's fairly easy to make good-looking headlines and cover pages if one knows their way around photoshop.  It could be one very elaborate scam!

*Takes paranoid hat off*

BUT, I don't believe it is.  Just something interesting to think about, especially given the history of various Bitcoin entrepreneurs.

SgtSpike is right. We could easily be a scam trying to get mailing addresses and real names of bitcoiners. And even if we're not, the security of that confidential data is extremely important is it not? Now rather than put all this on my shoulders at this moment (usually Vladimir handles our security) I will say that if you are ordering through e-Mail, your e-mail is only seen by myself, Mihai Alisie, and Google documents servers. If you are ordering through Bit-pay, it is only seen by me and Tony of Bit-pay. That should be enough but I understand if a security and anonymity conscious community requires more from me. I am absolutely all ears on this one. Any advice?

Bbit (although surely jesting) is wrong. I am not going anywhere. I enjoy trolling low standards far too much to ever leave the world of Bitcoin. I also have shared my personal, banking, address, etc information with 50+ individuals in our organization, the Digital Commerce Advancement Organization (http://dcao.org). So if I ever did something stupid, Vladimir Marchenko, Ken Armitt, Zhou Tong, Arthur Britto, Roger Ver, Stefan Thomas, Charlie Shrem, Jay Shore, Erik Vorhees, Mihai Alisie, Nuri hodges, Slush, Steven Wagner, 40+ others would not only know where I live, but they'd know exactly how to hurt me the most.
So, who are these 50+ individuals with whom Matthew has shared his personal information?  Do any of them know the current status of Matthew and the magazine?

I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet, but if this was a scam, it was certainly the most elaborate and believable scam I've seen so far.

Jeez , everybody here is completely paranoid. The guy is "missing" for a few days and you
are about to pickup the torches and pitchforks...  chill down.

Farfiman is wright! Let's wait a few more days before we draw any more conclusions.

Well more like...

guy in middle of an ambitious launch goes missing without notifying anyone, at the same time all websites go down, and all email goes unanswered.

Maybe it isn't a scam but:

It's almost like you'd benefit from some regulation and oversight to prevent scams.  Crazy idea, I know.

he must be on a cocaine and hooker binge with Zhou Tong.  both guys have been MIA for a few days now.

Well maybe this didn't go as planned and we should ask Zhou for the details since he's back now  Tongue

It's going to turn out that a bunch of these so called "hero members" are going to be caught up in some of the major scams we've see with bitcoin mark my words - don't put it pass me that there is a cabal of these guys colluding to try different scams with some degrees of  seperation I bet you could find some "finger prints" related to mybitcoin and previous other scams to some of these people.  They then come back as perfect angels in these forums.

Bitcoinmagazine.net and bittalk.tv are down, and Matthew is nowhere to be found!  Shocked

*FLAIL-FLAIL-FLAIL!!!*

I paid for the mag 9 days ago, and was just wondering how to get the digital version Tongue

By the way, I never implied that this was a scam. Matthew is way too open for that. I'm just flailing around for no reason, and being too demanding in jest. Servers do go down.
