A great big +1 on the magazine. Just before LGM, Ricardo, Ana, Femke, a.l.e.
and I pulled together Libre Graphics Magazine #0. Since then, I've been
thinking seriously (as I plan workshops and talks for artists and design
students) about the value of doing such a magazine more frequently. I think
it would be a great vehicle around which to build some user community, as
well as a nice, professional public show of what F/LOSS graphics software
So I'm game to pick up where we left off on the magazine, and willing to add
some editorial weight to the effort. If anyone else is interested in working
on it too, all the better.
