Update: What happened to Issue #15?
The Dot Connector staff have still been in a "holding pattern" of late. The simple fact of the matter is that we are too few, with too little funding, and too many other projects to work on.
As a result, we are no longer taking new subscriptions. We will hopefully be getting Issue #15 printed shortly. After that, we will produce further issues to fulfill everyone's subscriptions. If we find that this is impossible, we will address current subscriptions either by issuing refunds, offering books in compensation, or something of that nature. We'll cross that bridge if/when we come to it.
In the meantime, don't miss our fundraiser on Sott.net. Every little bit helps!

What happened to Issue #15?
The Dot Connector staff have been in a "holding pattern" of late. Our main layout editor and the original founder of the magazine, Paul Bondarovski, has been in the hospital for awhile now. He is currently recovering from major surgery.
We have another person doing the layout for #15, but it is definitely not the same since Paul is still the heart of The Dot Connector Magazine. Needless to say that our entire volunteer staff have all been preoccupied with Paul's health and wellbeing!
At this point we are going to delay the release of the next edition, Issue 15, until January. Hopefully, we will then be back on a normal publishing schedule.
Thank you for your understanding!

We have canceled all recurring PayPal payments for current subscriptions. This means that subscribers will still get The Dot Connector, but subscriptions will NOT auto-renew like they did before. When your current subscription is about to expire, you will receive renewal instructions first via post, and then via e-mail.
As for Issue #14, we are currently wrapping it up as quickly as possible. Issue #15 will follow shortly thereafter!

The Dot Connector Magazine Joins Forces
The Dot Connector Magazine (DCM) is growing and transforming in a wonderful way: a year and a half after the release of its premier issue, the magazine goes from being a one-man operation to being a full-featured illustrated bi-monthly with a staff of competent and experienced journalists, a publishing house, websites that count over a million visitors a month, and a strong and growing community of readers!
Starting with the next issue, number 10, the Dot Connector joins forces with the SOTT.net team
and becomes the official magazine of the Signs Of The Times, a project sponsored by the Fellowship of the Cosmic Mind,
pioneered by historian and best-selling author Laura Knight-Jadczyk
. I will continue as Editor and Director of Production, but will now be working alongside a team of gifted artists, writers and editors.
This fusion is natural. I knew and loved Laura's and her team's work for years, and knew instinctively that we see the world mostly the same way. To my surprise, our very first meeting showed that our views are not only 'mostly', but exactly the same! So, within half an hour of entering the SOTT headquarters we were already discussing not 'general questions' but the content of the next issue of our Dot Connector!
I have to admit that in the very beginning of the Dot Connector magazine project I underestimated just how important it is to combine forces with a group of like-minded people. Until now, the Dot Connector has been totally independent of any particular group, community or association. It was my thought that editorial and intellectual independence was essential for any publication that aims to reveal the unfettered truth. I came to realize this is only partly true because total independent began to prove counter-productive for two main reasons: first and foremost, a one man magazine operation is simply untenable over the long term. Secondly, the DCM had no network that it served to which readers could become attached and identified with. When somebody stumbled upon the Dot Connector on the Internet and couldn't immediately identify the publisher of the magazine, he or she, even finding it interesting, had no chance to feel it as 'his' or 'her' magazine.
The 'alternative world' has become so vast that, just like mainstream society, it now has its own "left" and "right" wings, and a lot of nuances in between. And as in the mainstream press it is easy to see whose views a newspaper reflects, so in the alternative press it is no longer enough for a magazine to be simply "alternative" - it has to be specific about where exactly it is headed and by and with whom it stands.
Nevertheless, a year and a half of "total independence" was a good experience for me. It helped to clarify my own views, and thus facilitated the choice I finally had to make. Of those many writers and speakers I resonated with a year and a half ago, only a few are left. To be honest, the "alarm bells" inside me are ringing more often now than ever before - at the same time it has become easier to recognize the various 'thought peddlers', disinformation agents and the paid and unpaid, witting or unwitting COINTELPRO volunteers who, unfortunately, constitute the majority of bloggers and forum members today. I was shocked by the number of such types on the Above Top Secret forum for example, where they literally control discussions! On the other hand, I have seen no such censorship or control on the SOTT.net discussion forum. When I talked to the SOTT team members, together and personally, I understood why. They don't just express and defend their opinions - they live them; their position in the articles and forum posts is their position in real and everyday life, tried and tested in the crucible of reality. And I mean down to the smallest detail. If they recommend a healthy food recipe or a food supplement, be sure they have tried it first on themselves!
"Be the change you want to see in the world" - is what this is all about. Start with yourself, and others will follow. It's this example of making no distinction between what you say, what you do, and the way you live, that the new Dot Connector magazine will now follow and live.
