This could be solved if we get monetary values of the project. Let's say we start a http://www.kickstarter.com campaign and see how it goes.

We need to put forward how this magazine will add values to other people's lives.

Totally agree with you on the hype, interesting blog post by the way. I also agree that using kickstarter will definitely "kickstart" the process and provide more motivation.

I created <a href="https://github.com/nixers-projects/magazine">nixers-projects/magazine</a>, I'm not quite sure how we should organize it, but we can definitely discuss that here.

It's an interesting project. I've never seen this before, because you usually just go to hacker news or reddit and read some news or articles. Commonly, those articles are about specific topics, and you aren't into those sometimes. It would be great to read about what you enjoy or use daily. This magazine is just the perfect fit. It groups different topics with the same goals: to talk about the *nix atmosphere, thus you may discover something you've never seen that'd improve your workflow or skills.

I'd suggest a topic that goes through good practices (and tips) in shell scripting, or even in C. I know a bunch of things in C (and getting better at shell scripting), and I'd love to contribute :)

It may be an idea to discuss some FOSS progeams (TeX, sagemath, ...) but the disadvantage is that each program is only relevant for a part of the target audience.

The comma gets sucked into the link, which causes a 404

If we're going to call this an "open source" magazine, it wouldn't hurt to decide on a license when we get to that part of actually writing it.

Thanks, fixed.

Putting down my name to proof read. Don't think there's much I could write about that couldn't be written by somebody else better.

Thanks for the proposal! We'll need a lot of proof reading actually!

Don't let this project die!!

I'll start an article about turning an OpenBSD box into a router, and connect to to different alternative networks.
Let's just stop speaking and start doing. For everyone that planned to to something, please start working on it, and commit to the task. Otherwise we'll never get anywhere. Let's make it!

Sounds good. Going to set up a Git repo or something so people who want to contribute can do so in one centralized place?

EDIT: nvm. i missed the link before :P

Same here, if there's that much needed at least.
