Gotta agree here. One thing that I don't understand is, how can Linux itself be maintained without subscriptions ! We have a lot of excellent free software, including the kernel, documentation, etc for gratis.
It feels unnatural to subscribe to an internet based journal, you can read almost any newspaper for free ...
Perhaps the answer is to create a community based magazine with minimal editorial interaction, like simple mailing list moderation. All you get for this moderating is status among your peers, not hard cash. I do believe that this would be a good enough incentive for many.
