Summary sums it up.
Existing blog software gives you great tools to put up and
edit your content online in a pleasant way. Yudu.com and
the likes let you manage a magazine by importing
documents and media. Some specific sites have an online
magazine, and invite users to join. What is invented
is a GENERAL COLLABORATIVE ONLINE MAGAZINE site, that
allows anyone to create magazines, and invite people to
join as correspondents and editors.

Can you compare this
with the blog in the link? [pashute, Aug 31 2010]
Found one, and looks like it's what I was looking for
But wasn't trivial. Should I delete this? [pashute, Aug 31 2010]
||Doesnt existing blog software also include those
general and collaborative ingredients that allow
anyone to continue to steal other peoples photos
and illustrations and hard work?
||I believe Wikia has a feature that allows you to compile a "magazine" from wiki articles and other elements.
||This could be done on Newsvine (MSNBC, yech), by creating a group and restricting membership to your chosen authors.
||What's the difference between this idea and
existing multi-editor, multi-contributor blogs like
salon, gawker, or, for that matter, slashdot?
||OK, looking up salon, gawker, forthatmatter and
||Gawker: Several online magazines on set topics
(Gossip from New York, Hollywood and some other
places). - I want a site that lets ME or YOU open a
new "Gawker" on a totally different topic, like -
"Abandoned Inventions" or the "Expired Patents
Magazine" (which is currently a blog:
ExpiredPatents . blogspot.com)
||Salon: Same as Gawker but about the Arts. So not
||Slashdot: One interface with many news items
categorized. You cannot open your own "Magazine
Look" as you would for a blog, and you can't
collaborate. You cannot decide on staff, because
the categories are real ones. A magazine on the
other hand would have any name, and inside
decide its: Looks, Staff, Categories, Content,
Subscription methods, and Subscriber lists.
||Forthatmatter.com: A search directory for
sciences. Nothing to do with magazines or blogs...
Just joking on the last one (for that matter).
||I already had my hopes up. See link
||what would the difference be between this and the many Internet forums that exist ?
||OK, Its baked. I found a new place. See Half last link.
||She who halfs last, lasts halfer.
