From the Editor: We bring you an uncharacteristic issue this time; a few articles now, and a couple more later. Most articles this issue are written by the Editor-in-Chief. But don’t let that scare you off, Issue 3 is a solid issue. The Editor’s letter introduces some interesting ideas for the magazine that could involve you. We’ll have two Spotlight articles when all said and done; one on a girl and one a boy. Checks and balances. The Bloke delivers a two-fisted tutorial for getting you started with building Textpattern plugins. Destry muses over theoretical designs following the recent Wikipedia Redesigned hoo-ha. We have our first guest author contribution this issue. (You should think about contributing your own sometime.) And a mystery author will review our newest Exhibit entry, which will wrap Issue 3 when posted. Read it all…
