2600, the quarterly magazine that deals with hacker culture and issues affecting it, is now available on the Amazon Kindle store. It’s $3.95 a pop (I think I pay $6-something at the newsstand), meaning a full year is just under $12. That’s quite a deal, particularly since the magazine primarily text; there’s no fancy drawings or anything. I guess the “phones from around the world” part will lose something in the move to Kindle, but what are you gonna do?
Emmanuel Goldstein, the magazine’s editor (and something of a rallying post in the hacker world), said that “other platforms” are being explored, so it’s not a case of them favoring the Kindle for no good reason.
Yup, that’s it.
