  • So now that TPJ is trying to get subscriptions to get their magazine back into print, TPR comes along and also wants subscriptions to go into print? Wouldn't it be better overall to combine these two efforts to make one superior magazine?

    Also, I assume there are a number of people only willing to pay for one or the other, not both. That hurts both groups trying to get money.
    • No. TPJ (the Journal) want subscriptions to their on-line content. I think they have pretty much given up on the idea of a print magazine. TPR (the Review) have (so far) provided their on-line content at no charge. As a lot of us mourn the passing of the print version of TPJ, the people at TPR are stepping-up-to-the-plate and going for a print version. As compares to other magazines that I subscribe to (SysAdmin and Linux Journal), US$20 is not a bad deal.

      I suspect that TPR will continue on-line even if enough pledges are not forthcoming. I think TPJ is all but dead in the water if they don't reach their quota. From what I can determine, the ideals are very different at both organisations.

      • I can't make promises, but I don't think TPR would go away if we don't make a print magazine for some reason (but I don't see that happening). Almost all of TPR is in CVS on SourceForge somewhere, so even if I got hit by a bus someone else could run with it :)
