New Genesys Magazine aka The Wire
« on: September 29, 2008, 07:39:50 PM »
Hi Everyone,

At the end of last week it was leaked out that a group of us are planning to create an independent Genesys magazine. The first edition will be published in December this year and the initial idea is to send out another edition every three months. Itís going to be called The Wire.

We plan to fill it with news, ideas, products and analysis aimed at us, Genesys techies\super users\managers. This will not be some A4 newsletter that is photocopied at night when the boss has gone home, it is going to be a full colour glossy magazine. Sounds cool doesnít it? But it gets better Ė it will be sent out for free!

Even though the main articles are currently being written, if you would like to get involved and you have an idea for an article or you have some news that you want the world to know about, then please drop me a quick line with a 2 line overview of your submission and Iíll get back to you as soon as I can. We have even approached Genesys if they would like to participate, we hope that they will, especially with Version 8.0 on the horizon.

If you work for a business that would like to advertise then we do have a small number of pages for advertising available. We will charge a modest fee but this money will be used to print and airmail the magazine to everyone.

I have a favour to ask; please donít send me emails directly asking for a copy as we will have a website set up in the next few days so that you can register online.

Remember itís free (everyoneís favourite word).

Best wishes,

Pavel

"was leaked out" needs to be re-written as "Vic blabbered it out without thinking"!

Nevertheless, it sounds like a really interesting idea, and while I am not totally sure about how fiscally viable it is, having something in color and a paper is definitely something that I can use. I hate reading things from a computer screen and prefer something physical any time.

Best regards,
Vic

Just a quick update to say I've received a couple of different mock ups of the magazine from the graphic designers this evening and they certainly look cool.

Another important update:

I've set up a basic website where you can register for a copy of The Wire. The more people that register the better.

www.thewiremag.com

A couple of people have mailed me to ask if registration is still open for The Wire. The answer is YES. We plan to go to press at the beginning of December so registration will be open for the first edition until at least the 1st December.

Cheers,

Pavel

Having issues with the password. It doesn't want to accept a password with a leading number.

You may want to change that on the page, or add to the instructions that it needs to lead with a letter...

There's no place in the form to include the State in which we live for those of us from the US.  It's tough to mail something to the US without specifying the state to which it should be sent. :)

Good morning everyone,

A couple of people have emailed asking if its still possible to register for the first edition. The answer is yes. The actual last date will be at the beginning of December just before the magazine goes to press.

On the subscriber list there are about 30 people who haven't clicked on the verification link in the email  - without confirmation we can't send you your copy.

Also a note on the address you enter. The Wire is a printed magazine which means it gets posted\mailed to you from the UK. This means we need your full address. Even with the best postal services in the world your name plus Dubai or Ventura California etc isn't going to be sufficient. If you think you've submitted an incomplete address just drop me a quick email with your address and I'll update the list.

Cheers,

Pavel
