In 2013 we brought you our first queasy green rundown of other people’s great journalism, observing that “in this season of relentless kindness, envy is often sadly neglected.” In 2014 we pretended it was about fair play, having published 7.5 million words that year ourselves and feeling a little piggy. Last year we yearned so deeply to have done what we did not do that you can see it on our faces just by hovering over them. — It was all rank jealousy."

Q&A with Stand Magazine's Dwayne Hayes
“I’m just a huge fan of print. When I read something, I want to grab it in print. When Borders (Bookstore) was opened, I would go there during my weekly Friday afternoon routine when I would get out of work early, sit down with a dozen or so magazines and just read through them all afternoon. And I think that the digital focus and emphasis in our lives actually provides a great opportunity for really beautifully-made print magazines. People enjoy being able to sit down and have a cup of coffee or have a beer and read something beautifully-made in print.” -Dwayne Hayes, Founder & Managing Editor, Stand Magazine.
