A long time ago in a publishing world far, far away, Brian Richard started Py, an independent Zine for Python developers. I still have several copies of the first issue I picked up at OSCON 2002. That was about the same time I was thinking about going into print with The Perl Review.
Brian and I had chatted over email a couple times, and he had moved on to Linux Magazine. I thought that was the end of Py.
Mark Pratt, the new publisher of PyZine, called me tonight (all the way from Barcelona) and we talked about what each of us is doing and what we have planned. I certainly don’t want to compete with PyZine, so my idea for a Python magazine (I wanted to call it MagPy) is dead.
There might be some ways we can help each other, but mostly we just talked about how we do things and exchanged some ideas.
Now I’ll have to find another idea for a new magazine, but that’s okay. :)
