I like it. At first I thought "$EXPLETIVE, I hope this isn't suggesting we
pipe the planet feed into the Magazine just to have more content!". Weekly
features is ideal. It wouldn't be a good idea to lean too heavily on a
small group of bloggers though, even if their posts are consistently more
suited to the venue.

Something like "*New* Package of the Week" would be interesting too. It
would have the side benefit of being more likely to include and involve
newly sponsored packagers.
