"Dumbo Feather Pass It On is a stupid name for a magazine"
August 4, 2011 3:12 PM   Subscribe

Dumbo Feather is an Australian quarterly print magazine which features five "extended (20 page) profiles of people worth knowing, across enterprise, science, politics, fashion and the arts." They're only just establishing an online presence. Profile archive is slim at the moment, but does include a lengthy interview from their current issue with Chris Anderson, curator of TED. A blog entry asks readers to submit their favorite TED talks, and an ongoing feature: Harnell Fletcher's Interviews with Children is taking submissions, too.

The title of the post, and the quoted description in the text come from the magazine's About page. Which I uh... meant to link to somewhere.

I am intrigued, and will now look for ways to make my employer pay for a subscription. If only it didn't sound like a journal for marital aids.

I just came in here to say that Ze Frank is a fucking internet treasure. His TED talk is wonderful.

I saw Dumbo Feather a few weeks ago and really liked it! At first I thought it came from my neighborhood in Brooklyn.

I also am intrigued, this sounds like my kind of magazine. One question before I start to seriously consider a subscription, though: Are all their articles in the short intro/Q&A-format?

A friend who writes for Dumbo Feather says there are usually five very in-depth/long Q&A features, and a few subfeatures.
