I found a very good website about computer science problems and algorithms, https://csacademy.com/
Maybe you can add it to the next newletter?

I'm planning on building a web UI to display the archive of the old newsletters.
It won't be difficult to put together (I already have the building blocks) but I'm looking for opinions and ideas that could enrich it.
What's the community take on this?

maybe two versions, one with just the letter as it is. And one where each link has its own page. Then people can add comments on the links and post related stuff... It might take a while before it seems useful, but after a while it can be a really good resource for. Another idea, is to contact original authors of the linked articles and see if you can "republish" the texts in a more pure text way, so it becomes more terminal friendly.

I really enjoy the newsletter as it is, keep up the good work!

I'd say just publish the newsletter as is, with the links and little description. Discussion can be made on the link site itself or via forums/IRC; having them on the forums if the need to comment arises we can keep ideas more organized and available for those who don't check the newsletter.

maybe. But forum seems like a cluttered way to post related links, it's better to have one discussion/thread per article if in forum form. And this board isn't so much about article/paper discussion. Thats why the newsletter is so great, it's like great compliment to the content on the board. And one thread per newsletter, might also be awkward, if yuo want to see/post stuff related to one link in the letter.

There is a really cool news aggregator called cor.ax (it origins from the swedish bubb.la). They operate like this: volunteers are posting interesting links on a closed "forum", then the members vote for which links to publish and what title they want to give the link. They focus on current events. But it would be cool to do something similar but only unix related and skip the time limit (they never post anything more then a week old i think).

Maybe I went a bit OT, but it's a bit related. But a wiki or some kind of collective aggregator link archive would be something.

I've updated the newsletter signup with an entries page and added the rss feed link at the top as many didn't seem to find it:
https://newsletter.nixers.net/entries.php

For the moment it seems like enough.
