I think the benefit of an APUG magazine would be that it is genuinely collaborative. Presumably we could all have a stake in it as we've all had the chance to have input in various ways. As I see it, if a magazine slowly took form through public discussions here, this would generate interest. If it didn't work, then so be it, as it would be on-demand, no financial penalties would be incurred. In fact, the idea of on-demand rather sweeps away the obsession with print runs, we do it for ourselves, we have the freedom to offer in put and the freedom to buy it or not.
