Yeah, I didn't want to be the first to say it but I have been thinking for a while that the ACG should probably find a new name before doing issue 2.

That is a very unfortunate name. Although I know the same thing happened back when some of the same people started a magazine in the 80s called Virus, which they then changed during the AIDS crisis.
Name notwithstanding, I look forward to reading the content.

The free PDF download of this journal is getting a fair amount of interest.

Well it's an excellent and substantial first issue well worth people reading. Personally I still like the nicely printed version of the journal.

At first I thought this was a really bad spam post, until I properly read the OP headline. Based on reading two articles and skimming the rest, the content is great, but I found it hard to read due to the layout/design. Normally, I don't have an issue with a justified, two-column layout, but with this one I had. I don't know if it's the font, spacing between the lines or paragraphs, lack of images to break up the walls of text, or something else.
