Internet Commenters (Should) Get Their Own Magazine

Posted By on Thu, Jul 30, 2009 at 11:05 AM

Internet Commenter Weekly, magazineYou know that whole thing about how the Internet has made everyone and their computer-literate parents a writer? Well, Holy Taco recently took the next logical step in that electronic media evolution and reverse engineered the words of their favorite commenters into a prototype for a print magazine dubbed, simply, Internet Commenter Weekly (pictured, the cover of issue number one).

More than a clever punchline about self-important commenter critics, this might actually be a brilliant way for online publications to make money and encourage less ironic/uninformed/insulting/racist reader participation. It could work something like this: for every year of membership on a site, users can purchase a printed edition of the most-read stories with all the accompanying commentary. Finally, your name in print!
