Publisher and EIC, Glenn Fleishman, writes in the announcement:
The Magazine will stop publishing its every-other-week issues on December 17, 2014, cancel all outstanding subscriptions, and automatically provide pro-rated refunds (either through Apple or directly) for subscriptions that continue past December 31, 2014. (We will be in touch directly with Kickstarter backers who subscribed via our Year One book campaign.) We will continue to make the app available as well as our Web site for the indefinite future, and you’ll have access to any issues you purchased or that appeared during subscriptions. That The Magazine is folding is sad to me, personally, on a couple levels. First and foremost, Glenn is a friend, and it sucks that the publication wasn't economically sustainable for him long-term. I know he's put in a lot of love into stewarding it since acquiring it from Marco last year. Secondly, The Magazine is the place that gave me my first taste of published authorship; "Re-Enabled" is the piece that launched my career and steered me to where I am today professionally. I'll always be grateful to Glenn (and Marco) for the opportunity, and "Re-Enabled" will always be my baby.
