Is this now going to be labeled as the May 2012 issue, sort of how it was scooted forward from being February to March so that when it "arrived" in February it would seem fresher?

Please, please, please quit requesting changes! Do you have any idea how long it takes to have the layout changed for something like that? April has five letters, whereas May has only three, therefore the whole front cover would have to be rearranged due to adding that extra white space. And if you change the cover, the images inside will need rearranging as well, then the content to coincide with the new images, as well. Hell, Bitcoin Magazine is already further behind since Matthew decided to include LadyBytes as the centerfold. It took two days before the illustrators even began to get bored of her image and moved on to the other 98 pages.

Therefore, I stress: No new changes! Unless, of course, this becomes a June issue, whereupon I'll delete this post, for four (letters) is much closer to five than thee is.

(My apologies to Matthew for injecting this friendly banter)

I just found this: http://bitcoinmagazine.net/bitcoin-gone-wild/

I wasn't aware of it when I penned the quoting-myself.

I stumble upon a "review" of Instawallet by Vitalik Buterin inb the magazine: it s very opinionated about the service we are running for free at our own expenses by stating it is "the least secure ".
Based on what and compared to what ?
Has there been a single occurence of fraud with instawallet.org ? None.
Adding an s to suggest with " instawallets" that this service is generic equates to condemning us to stand for any service ressembling ours failing in any manner for any reason.

In short, why send missiles on a website that is just trying to provide one of the easiest way to step into the bitcoin economy ?

This is not the best way to make newbies comfortable about using bitcoin.

Are the comments on the article not working?

That is the appropriate place to address inquiries to a specific article author.

...would you be so kind as to let us know what questions we can ask?

You can ask anything you want. I won't be discussing publishing or distribution details with the public in a thread. We'll announce important details like that directly on our website though.

First, there won't be any discussions on publishing or distribution details.  Now we've been directed to comment on the source of the article's page, for it's clearly shown that a discussion about an article in the Bitcoin Magazine would be better served if not bought forward here on this thread or elsewhere on this forum. The same thread of the same forum whose users offered up a myriad of suggestions during Bitcoin Magazine's inception for its betterment, in which many ideas were embraced, thus starting a snowball effect of said magazine's ability to obtain subscribers and advertisers.

That said, would somebody representing Bitcoin Magazine be so kind as to outline exactly what we can discuss on your official thread here on BitcoinTalk? Also, please offer up any other taboo subject matter so that users here won't be embarrassed when they inevitably may cross the line.

I get the feeling you want to paint this as a conspiracy of sorts, so I'll explain.


Reader has problem with an article by a particular writer commissioned by the magazine. Reader can respond directly to the article for all other readers to discuss but most importantly for the author to see and respond to, defend if necessary, correct if necessary, apologize if necessary. Vitalik doesn't read this thread and I'm not going to relay messages to him when an open channel already exists.

This thread is about the magazine, not about individual article opinions. Feel free to troll about the shipping not having happened yet, the quality of the paper stock, etc, but when it comes to things like "Hey! Please get the guy who did this image in here and explain why he draw this sideways!", I kind of have to draw a line somewhere.

Start a new thread about it if you want, but don't expect the author to even know it exists. Bitcointalk != Bitcoin Magazine's personal forum. We already have plenty of communication channels and our own forums, bitcoin.org.uk. On that note, why aren't you over there Bruno? We need more good straight thinking people who aren't afraid to stand up for what they believe but are equally capable of admitting mistakes. It seems like there are maybe 10 people on this entire forum with those qualities sometimes.

I concede! Damn good post, one of which I can't argue (for lack of a better word). Thank you, Matthew. Later, bud.

I noticed the comments weren't working correctly and/or were kind of hard to find. For that I owe an apology. I hope the issue with the article is cleared up speedily.

While I don't expect to get an exact date, I'm curious too:

When do you expect to ship the Bitcoin magazine (specifically in the US)?

We expect it to be in the mailboxes of US citizens 10 days from shipping to the printers. Since the proof is still be finalized, no one has received their printed or digital copies yet. Your pre-orders are greatly appreciated and your patience will not go unrewarded.

Glad to see you're almost ready to go to print. What a relief that must be. Hopefully, that will give you time for the next Christmas video special! =p

@Matthew

I'm only going to pen these two words ONCE--2013 Bitcoin Calendar (Oops! Three Words)

I feel you and your team are in best position to pull this off. At a price point of $6.95-$9.95 USD (a guess) each, I pledge an order of 10 calendars. If you and your team are keen on this idea, please start another thread.

Sincerely,
