Oh, and regarding cursing and the likes, I'd like to paraphrase Eddie Murphy:

TYPO ALERT!!
On the article "How our languages fail us" the quote “When Jane Austen wrote her classical novels she used the world ‘intercourse’ to describe people interacting with each other.” i think you meant to say "word" instead of "world" if I'm wrong do tell. The typo is there twice. Good article btw.

I literally was editing that out as I saw an update to this topic. But thanks. =)

Fantastic magazine! Good looks and content that matches.
Also very nice from a user experience POV, just a pointer: When reading an article, it is not very obvious that the TOC-link can actually be interacted with. Also, since the links to next/previous article in the top/bottom look the same, there ought to be a TOC-link there as well.

Anyways, I will promote the shit out of it.

I can't brain today, but:

Agreed. That would be handy to have at the bottom of the page.

Yeah dude, considering you're not natives, your English is excellent, and probably better than some professional journalists here (it saddens me to say that, but it's true).
Overall, I have few complaints, with my main gripes being small typos here and there. Keep up the good work, I will be looking forward to reading more soon!

Oh wow. What an awesome site. It looks just really, really good.

I got so many questions about it right now, but to just post it without asking seems a little bit inappropriate, in a way. Tell me if I can Gaijin bro :D

Of course

Why thank you, fine sir.

How long did it take to design the website? It's one of the best I've seen lately, and I guess it's not just developed in a few hours, right? And how did you get Robert so far to cooperate? (I mean, a.i. he's a human like all of us, but still, has kind of a mythical status if that's the right wording)

Lastly I want to congratulate you, it looks like it's going to be a real influential site in the near future IMO, and you got some amazing starting articles! :D

I can't really answer how long the design work was, Rob has been working on it on and off for a while. I'll ask him next time we talk though.

And how.. i got him to cooperate? Uh.. well, see, we're friends and have been for almost 15 years now. Not only is it easy to work with him, it was also his basic idea from the start. So I'd rather say that it was a matter of him getting me to cooperate. ;)

Anyway, good luck with it :D

Having read through more of the content available, (really good content, I might add) I have noticed a few things that I find annoying.
When viewing an article, the black bar at the top of the page that says TOC is rather weird. Why not Table Of Contents? There's more than enough space, and it just seems silly, especially when right next to an article headed: "How our languages fail us"
Also, on any other page than the homepage, the page title is long, repetitive andalljoinedtogetherlike | this.com

However, I really like it, and the above points were the only things I could find wrong with it at the moment. Seriously, I cannot wait for more.

I'll pass it along. More content in... just under 22 hours.

You tease. You fucking tease. I've read all articles through, three of them twice. Seriously, I've waited and yearned to read something like that for years.
There's too much mumbojumbo bullshit available nowadays, it's refreshing to read intelligent, well argumented and written text about topics that really matter.
So... I stay tuned :D
