BrickJournal 9

BrickJournal 9 is released.
It can be downloaded here.

Unfortunately, this will be last free issue.
BrickJournal will get a printed version (subscribers will get also the PDF digital version) with its next issue (Brick Journal 1, Volume 2) for $11.00, that will be released at Feb.2008.

To download issue 9, you must register at 'TwoMorrows Publishing', so you get notified about next releases.

In what concerns LEGO TECHNIC, this issue features an article about new HiTechnic IRLink sensor (also announced by TBs, here) and how it can be integrated with new Power Function motors from NXT.

It detail some aspects of HiTechnic Infrared Link sensor and how to program it.

One of the results, can be seen in video below.

Bad news: I guess that many BrickJournal readers will be disappointed for having to pay in order to get this publication as it was free before as a PDF. Beyond that, my real concern is that going from digital to printing is a step back in terms of environmental awareness. I wonder if subscribers will have the option of receiving the PDF version only, I wonder if subscribers will choose to do so. Printed material means less trees, chemical waste and burnt gasoline. Yes, I know that having the physical information has its advantages: You can take the magazine with you to the park, to your dining table, to the restroom (by the way, you can do the same with your laptop). Also, there is a nice thing about having the physical object and the approach at the time of reading on paper versus at the computer screen, but I don't think this little pleasures are worth when compared to the environmental price to pay.

One more comment: There is nothig such "free" things out there. You will receive issue number 9 in exchange for your personal data. Expect unsolicited mail and marketing phone calls.
