Good start! Looking forward to more.

As far as feedback - I don't think anyone's going to do a crossword in binary or an ascii code word-find puzzle. But a real bitcoin-themed crossword/wordfind puzzle would have been a very cool extra.

Yeah, I got a good laugh out of the binary crossword, but I won't be completing it.  Also, more variation in the styling of text in your magazine could be nice. Black, white, and grey: it is very plain looking right now. Definitely room for improvement, but I say the more magazines, the merrier.

MNW - Can you post a link to the first e-zine from a year ago?  I'd love to see it.

The puzzle pages were created more for gimmicky reasons at this point, but it's good to see that people are appreciating the humour. Although we did not necessarily think that people would take the Bitword puzzle too seriously, we did think that people may take a shot at finding the hidden words in the Hexfind puzzle  Wink

Like any regular publication, this one will evolve over time.

Thanks for all of the feedback so far.

More news to come.

I'm surprised you zero-based the issues but not the volumes...  Why not Volume 0 Issue 0? (:

Competitions and contests are always fun and will definitely be something we will be looking at for upcoming issues.

Advertising information is on the way.


Updates to the website are rolling out as the magazine does and information will be posted here as well as at the site.

Today is a busy day Wink

A fair question to be sure Smiley

Issue #0 is the "Zero ads" version, it is still part of the first Volume, but not quite the first issue since Issue #1 will contain ads. We chose not to solicit ads (or any form of sales) until after we demonstrated our ability to driver the product.

Ultimately, Issue #0 could become a collectable since the run will not be the same as the version with the ads and after Issue #0 we likely will not do any more "Zero ads" issues.

I give you props for letting people download a free pdf version of your magazine.

Good job. Not all about making money. Contributing =)

You should've learnt with Matthew...

1st: You announce the Magazine will be out in a month...
2nd: You collect yearly subscriptions money...
3rd: You keep giving excuses for the Magazine not being out yet
4th: You make a blog post excusing yourself and saying it was your fault for announcing it too soon, conveniently not mentioning the part where you collected money from people.
5th: ?? ?? ??
6th: Profit!

NOW, THIS IS HOW PROS DO IT!

EDIT: Forgot about something... Matthew also says that anyone interested in having better updates about the state of the magazine publishing should join that .co.uk bitcoin forum owned by Vladimir because he doesn't want to post them here, in the forum owned by the competition.
I suppose all bitcointalk.org is good for is to collect yearly subscriptions money and trolling, ain't that right, Matthew?

Congrats on the Ezine.
Still looking for the other one too.

Me too! Can't wait for the illustrators to finish their work on the Bitcoin Magazine.

Shit is looking so sweet I want to crap my pants.

If you can produce a magazine fast, cheap, and fill it with well written articles, you will satisfy the Bitcoin enthusiasts and curious alike. I would also prepare to format for POD as these machines will replace traditional book distribution.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Absolutely agree, and that is the plan Grin


... I would also prepare to format for POD as these machines will replace traditional book distribution.
POD file format? Interesting suggestion. Just to be sure, are we talking about "plain old documentation" files?
We currently have paper, PDF and MOBI (via Amazon).
Next up is EPUB.

Basically if we can reformat without having to redesign (much) and if the potential users are there, then we'll do it. The more people who can read it, the better. We just don't want to spend too much time converting files when we could be creating content. Wink
