@kenleyneufeld They’re throwing a lot of stuff at the wall and paying for the whole system depending on who you are. As a writer who just uses it, you get the writing environment, hosting, a soapbox, but no compensation.
That book we Kickstarter-ed is nearly printed and shipped! You can still pre-order hardcover copies; the ebook is partly ready (PDF version), but we’re waiting to fulfill pre-orders until we have EPUB + MOBI done. http://the-magazine.com/book
