Re: The future of Arch Linux Magazine

I gave you these following names on IRC to embodied Arch and the rolling release cycle:

The Arch Cycle
Rolling with the Times
The Rolling Arch
The Rolling News.
News cycle.
Time cycle.
Rolling News Cycle.
Arch Forward News
The Rolling Times
Rolling Insight


Hopefully this will help others get some ideas while we brainstorm as a community.

Some are serious, some are not.

*) The Arch Differential :from the notion of small changes
*) Kitty : from the notion of text stream manipulation with "cat" and the laziness of real cats (it gets posted when it gets posted, i.e. relaxed deadlines, etc). Bonus: good logo potential.
*) The Arch Stream : again, text stream
*) Alice : Arch Linux [Incremental | International] Community eMagazine
*) The Archive(s)
*) The Ive(s) of Arch : see previous
*) The Archer
*) Pipes and Arrows : abstracting at this point
*) Pipes and Nipples : previous combined with jasonwryan's "The Nipple" suggestion

I thought of Arch Technica too, but it would be too much of a knock-off name imo.

Re: The future of Arch Linux Magazine

"The Archer" is not bad, imo. But something like "Archer Live" or "The Living Archer" wink look even better to me.

We've tried this several times. Usually we end up with 10-15 volunteers, but on average only 1 or 2 that follow through.

I've offered up my services and written a few articles, but have gotten little to no information about whether said articles arrived, or if they will still be used.  Perhaps a better way to follow article submissions is required?  A twitter channel, google docs shared folder or something quick and easy, instead of a wiki page (which contains, last time I checked, article ideas only)?

As always, I'm happy to help, but I feel that it may be important to define what sort of articles are wanted within the magazine.  Tutorials?  News reports? Anything arch or linux-related?  I also write for Full Circle Magazine (Ubuntu community magazine), and I have to say that I feel articles are easier to decide upon with the way the magazine is defined/organized.  I'd be happy to write up what the process is for article submissions for FCM if there's an interest.

I'm happy to also pitch-in management-wise, though I'm not certain how useful I'd be.  Perhaps we should set up a regular meeting on the freenode channel once a month (or once in a release cycle), towards the start, in order to consolidate ideas for the upcoming issue?

As for a name, I always felt ALM - Arch Linux Magazine was good enough.

Quiver (just Quiver, without additions) is a good idea, too.

Maybe come up with a set release schedule.  I.e. magazine comes out last week of every month, articles are due on the first Sunday, etc.  Just to help writers to get their articles written.

Re: The future of Arch Linux Magazine

Why not just name it "Arch"? Arch is supposed to be lightweight, why not give the magazine a lightweight title?

Because the title needs to be original.  Just calling the magazine "Arch" will cause confusion among what's being referred to, the distro or the magazine?

Re: The future of Arch Linux Magazine

How about "a Bite"? (obscure reference to Pacman tongue), or you could go with "a Byte", but that's unoriginal big_smile  Maybe "a Byte of News"? or "News bite" (like sound bite)
