Letter from the Editor

Almost a real magazine

Welcome to the third issue of Human Readable Magazine. It almost looks like a real magazine!

Do you know what the one good thing that came out of this jobless quarantine, at least for me, is? This issue. I was able to implement so many of my ideas and work with so many people I admire, it's ridiculous.

I had the pleasure of working with a few people who, for those of you subscribed to Morning Cup of Coding, will sound familiar. Authors like John D. Cook and Bartlomiej Filipek.

On top of that, we experimented with animated covers, thanks to the talented illustrator Bulma. We also commissioned this issue's gorgeous cover by the one and only Enisaurus.

And on top of that, we now have a Reader Mail segment, a collaboration with TheDailyWTF, and even a crossword puzzle that nobody asked for. It's slowly taking the shape of the magazines that I read growing up and have influenced me.

And on top of that our print quality went two notches up since we switched to a new printer and I learned a few more things about the process. We still have a few ways to go regarding delivery times, but the quality has improved visibly.

Like I said, I'm very proud of how this issue came out. I hope you enjoy reading it just as much we enjoyed creating it.
