Marco Arment on the early success of The Magazine:

I don’t know how to save journalism, but I’m also not qualified to. I’m not a journalist and I don’t know much about that industry.

But he knows enough to make something great by starting small. Rupert Murdoch isn’t going to do that.

I don’t know if this counts for anything, but I’ve gotten more retweets of my piece for The Magazine than probably for anything I’ve ever written (fortunately, almost all of them positive). And I have a check. There’s no Marge in accounting Marco and Glenn Fleishman have to go through.

Not that Marge isn’t a pleasure to work with (smoking hot).
