Anyone want to join the REBOL/Zine?
The REBOL/Zine is a simple cron job type mailing list that
just sends out a weekly batch of articles to subscribers.
It will be weekly. The articles will be about email length
covering simple cool things you can do with REBOL. That's
all there really is to it. The format is really open,
though. People could even include poetry about REBOL, I
T'was a man, Carl his name,
Uttered REBOL of endless fame!
Built the core, command and view,
Ha ha. Fun stuff-- you know a basic simple zine where
people send in their articles to a mailing address, someone
gives them a quick eye over and then hits go, and the
articles are all REBOL processed into a nice neat
REBOL/Zine. Of course, one module spits out a nice new
REBOL/Zine web page archiving the previous. Keep it very
simple. I'd like to get it started if people were willing
to help contribute articles.
Articles should be things like: "Hey here's how you do X!"
kind of thing, or "Hey did you know you can do: X??" or
"This is a neat trick I discovered", etc.. Editorial's okay.
You can also submit articles about how you want people to
join your open source REBOL project etc, etc. Whatever-- an
open forum. The only censorship will be a matter of
readabilty, relevance to the community, limiting spam, that
sort of thing. Also, if you'd like to write a REBOL article
in your native (non-english) tongue, please do. We can
always worry about translations latter. Besides, REBOL code
is REBOL code, so we should all be able to understand that.
I'd like to write an article or two and if you'd like to as
well, please send me an email. After the ball gets rolling
and there's enough material for a first issue we can post
some way for people to subscribe and set up the web page--
but simple things first, let's write some articles.. "let's"
meaning all you gurus out there! Let's put some of this
brain power to a fun and productive use!!
