Two bits of feedback:

1) It's tough for me to pass this around my office (even though I still am) with things like "Bitcoin Sucks" and "Bitcoin Pr0n" on the cover.  Doesn't come off as very professional (even though I know these are common phrases on this forum).

2) One co-worker who read it was surprised that it didn't explain how to get bitcoins.  I asked her if she wanted to get some and she said no, which I chuckled & replied "why do you want it in the magazine then?" 

I don't think there necessary needs to be instructions on how to get bitcoins in this, but I figured you'd want any feedback available.

Ahhh, look at me going old-school, lol.

I remember when those machines first came out, definitely a step in the right direction for publishing paper. It looks like those machines in particular are more suited for paperback books, but I may not have looked hard enough, or a magazine printing version of that machine is just a logical progression.

The nice part is that we do have a PDF version that is formatted ideally for production on equipment of that type. We are quite experienced with digital-to-print processes so this is an easy match.

On the 2 bits of feedback (which is definitely appreciated), the first are good points, they are wordplay titles, and are certainly directed more towards the Bitcoin savvy as opposed to those who are unaware of Bitcoin. Although we did do some wordplay with the word pr0n, that section was actually about FPGA cards and contained no human elements whatsoever Wink

On page 11 there is a view from 10,000 feet of how to get Bitcoins. There is not a detailed how-to, nor are there listings of exchanges, etc. but is does explain how Bitcoins go around. This information will definitely be expanded upon in future issues Wink

There certainly is a LOT of information potentially available and we plan on packaging up different types of information in ways that are practical and useful.

Thank you everyone for the feedback so far.

What does Wafflehound mean? Is that some magazine publisher idiom?

I am also curious about the "Wafflehound" reference. I have heard excellent things about IHOP in the US, but have not made it to one yet. Golden Griddle here in Canada is favoured by many Wink

Coineer - The Bitcoin Magazine, electronic edition, is going extremely well and essentially as planned. We will be adding more online distribution channels shortly.

Coineer - The Bitcoin Magazine, print edition is also going as planned, on time and ready to ship (announcement for direct sales is coming up Cheesy).

You need a better marketing strategy.

I would recommend you never actually release any magazine, but build hype up Duke Nukem Forever style and take in lots of money from pre-orders.

Considering that these magazines have a high likelihood of being seen and flipped through by the general public, I think it would be a huge help to the Bitcoin economy if EVERY magazine had a one page blurb/faq titled "What is bitcoin?" where the concept can be explained in laymen terms for anyone who's never heard of Bitcoin before.

This breakdown could be edited and revised from issue to issue to make it as simple and short as possible to get the general idea across.

In fact, I've been looking for a simple explanation of what Bitcoin is and how it works, to pass around to friends and family when they ask about it, but I've yet to see a short and simple explanation that covers all the essential bases.

A response from you was inevitable and not really a major concern.
It sure is inevitable that I would be attracted to shoddy projects and push them to raise the bar. It's what I do. And why would it be a major concern unless you are hiding something? You're weird.

The current state of publishing is only the initial soft rollout online.
So in other words, it still isn't published, and you're just an electronic magazine at this point. There's nothing to be ashamed of from starting small, I just don't understand why you're trying to lie. Here you try to make it sound like you yourself aren't just an e-zine.

If there is another magazine (not eZine or "coming soon") about Bitcoin, I would like to know about it Smiley

By the way, you're not even the first e-zine. There was one a year ago and it actually sucked worse. I guess I should be glad the bar is rising at least.

I am not concerned with the checklist you are providing, we will proceed on our own merits.
And apparently proceed on your own reality as well. In our reality we call "lying" a deceptive business practice and it's typically frowned upon.

Announcing "Coineer - The Bitcoin Magazine", the World's First Bitcoin Magazine.

Coineer: This is what he is talking about. A bit surprised that you haven't seen it since the thread has been on the first page a lot over the past few months.
I am actually well aware of that particular site and the threads surrounding it, which was why I said if there was one that was not an eZine or "coming soon".

Quote from: http://coineer.com
Coineer The Bitcoin Magazine, Print Edition Available Shortly
Isn't your printed 'magazine' "coming soon" also?  Roll Eyes




At least he has a product you've got nothing to show for your "Zine"...

Definitely in agreement with this.

Hehe, well we just wouldn't be Canadian if we couldn't handle a little humour here and there. Smiley
Rest assured, we are here to promote and progress what can be achieved with Bitcoin. We will do this by spreading awareness and information in ways that are accessible and practical.

Also remember here in Canada we have AMD Markham (formerly ATI Wink) and a whole slew of major tech companies plus others that are Bitcoin centric who are moving along quite nicely. Our intention is not to be Canadian centric though, but it is nice to be geographically close to where a lot of action is happening.
