Discover Magazine has opened its back-issue archives (1992-present) to the public, you no longer need to be a subscriber.

This is awesome - but what I would actually pay money for is an online archive of OMNI Magazine.

Very nice, thanks! If only more publications did this. I wonder how much revenue most magazines actually bring in via sales of back articles/issues?

Nifty. The only thing that would make this totally and stupendously awesome would be inclusion of Larry Gonick's "Science Classics" cartoons. But at least they have Jeffrey Kluger's "Light Elements" column.

Wonderful news! I have been an on-again, off-again subscriber to Discover, mainly because it makes me feel dumb (the off-again part), but it also occasionally teaches me something amazing (on-again).

I think I'm in an on-again mood now, and will probably subscribe tonight... they deserve my support for opening up their archives!
