I first met Jeremy Andrews through KernelTrap, a website that reports about everything that's happening in the Linux kernel world. It has been one of my favorite web sites. Back in 2001, KernelTrap ran on PostNuke, but I managed to convince Jeremy to switch to Drupal. He learned so much about Drupal in the process, the he quit his day job and started his own Drupal business, Tag1 Consulting.

Now Jeremy is launching Drupal Watchdog, the first print magazine dedicated to Drupal. I admired Jeremy's reporting when I was a regular reader of KernelTrap so I'm excited to see how Drupal Watchdog will take shape. Despite the irony of dedicating a print magazine to a web technology, it has the potential to become quite a highlight in the history of Drupal, and an important new tool in how we share information and communicate. To that extend, I've decide to write a column for Drupal Watchdog.

The first issue will be distributed exclusively at DrupalCon Chicago in March as part of the attendee bag. It's yet another reason to attend DrupalCon Chicago. For more information, check http://drupalwatchdog.com or get in touch with Jeremy at [email protected].

Great idea for a mag, but ouch! that logo looks terrible... Please stop the morphing of the drop.

That did not take long to materialize. You mentioned that a print magazine may happen at your Copenhagen Drupalcon keynote. Nice to see it here.

For the record, the logo on the Media Kit page is much better:

However, I would like to add that a sickeningly cute logo would be pretty rad as well. I don't suppose there's a PSD file for the scary-dog that we could mess around with? :)

Either way, thanks so much for doing this, Jeremy. It's an AMAZING effort even if the logo happens to many babies cry.

Love the logo :) Tired of the candy corn crap that most Drupal people think is soo stinkin' adorable.

Unless this will be printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper, with organic non-toxic inks, on a solar-powered printing press and delivered by time-traveling carrier pigeons to keep it relevant, it seems like a waste and a step backwards.
