When three Linux journos go crowdfunding

Re: 50 percent of profits?

The "dead tree" magazine we worked on GREW in circulation last year. It sold over 20,000 copies around the world, and made money. That's money that could go back to free software communities.

So we should've stayed at our old company, putting up with reduced page counts and other things that impeded us from making the best magazine possible? This isn't "fragmenting" -- it's a team making something better, more responsible, more involved in the community. A big step forwards, and a different kind of publishing model.

Will we succeed? We can only see. But this isn't some petty fork -- it's a very different kind of mag.
