Hi Martin, Sounds good. I'm interested: - Which other people or companies are joining you in your efforts? You mention ads, subscriptions and publication rights and I'm wondering which entity will be dealing with that. - Will there be an editorial board performing the reviews? - Who will be the readers? What is the intended audience, level and reach? Thanks! -- Roderick van Domburg http://www.nedforce.com

Please, please correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't you associated with a previous Ruby journal effort that seemed to have an issue with taking people's subscription money and then not actually providing anything to them at all? The last I heard (which, admittedly, was some time ago) there was no resolution for many of those people. --Jeremy On Thu, Apr 2, 2009 at 12:03 PM, Martin Streicher <email@example.com> wrote: > > timely and accessible. > > demand form.

I am just getting started and hope to draw in a lot of smart, expert contributors. Print on-demand will be handled by an online service such as MagCloud. Ads will be managed internally, as well subscriptions, at least at first. There will be a suite of technical reviewers to vet content. Again, the technical reviewers share revenue as well. The audience is computing professionals who earn a living working with these technologies. The audience is mid- to senior- developers, although some of those may be new to certain technologies, so we can introduce technology at a ramped-up pace. Reach is international.

Jeremy: I did try to launch a journal before, yes. And I made every attempt to return all monies. If anyone is still owed money, I will return it. There were some people I could not reach via email after the fact to return their funds. PayPal still has the records of payment, so I can verify payment and whether the person was made whole or not. Please contact me at email@example.com to reconcile any issues.

I went back to my records. These folks are owed $60 each. Hopefully, each person continues to read this forum; or, perhaps a friend or coworker will recognize one of the names and ask the individual to contact me. I can try some googling, too.
