  • I would be interested in participating. It seems a little ambitious and that's the way I like it.
  • My thoughts are that there should be a test run. That is to say that we should create a temporary blog where we would have all those willing to participate actually write something just to get a taste of how it will be.
  • Yes, we will need a publishing platform. How to publish the content in one pdf.  I think we should do a permanent beta after the first edition goes live but first printing and sending  needs a trial run.
  • That should be the starting point and from there we can evaluate how we would organize the magazine.
  • Yes, a publishing platform will allow us to shape it really well. Picking the right platform/formula from the start should have priority.
  • Once we see whose actually committed to the project, we can advance to the next stage and start preparing everything.
  • I do not beleave in waiting for others to act. I will try to prepare everything even if no one takes part, that decision is based on how it looks so far.Image
  •  Of course by the time the test run is over we should already have all the costs figured out and a plan formed.
  • I would call this "problem 1" Sending a direct mailing in the US is 540$ for 5000 copy's, but we want to know what it costs for each country. 
  • One question though, will we be able to edit our post before it goes to print?
  • yes we will need to change it lots of times to make it look good.
  • how many people have you got interested so far?
  • I didn't send a lot of messages, we have 6 real participants now. Image

  • My comment on this Great post, :)
  • The editing functionality should be automated by the web itself, using a kind of page ranking mechanism, except in a way that ranks pages based on an individual's interests.
  • A vote system could affect the freedom a bit. But it could be used to indicate posts that are over the top. So we can vote to remove a post or demand editing. Better would be to explain why one doesn't like a post or finds it unacceptable. I do think that we should all agree before we publish. If one of us doesn't we should look into it take a vote. :)
