WELCOME TO THE FUTURE

IT IS NOW

picture After 3 years of research and development, we proudly present the world’s first AutoSOFT AutoZINE, Ebon Femme. AutoZINEs are designed to be flexible and fast with security as a focus. Rather than trying to flood the reader with the type of presentation in a newspaper, Ebon Femme uses a clean interface that is easy to read with no distractions.

Many sites will run more ads than content but AutoZINEs are designed to allow you to Own, Share and Use YOUR news. We also don’t limit views for anonymous readers as many major sites do. We want you to be informed and don’t want the intrusions of ads that may come from malicious sources.

When we began on this journey 4 years ago, the world was in the throes of near-revolution and in some ways still is. We looked at all the places where one can get news and information and all had major flaws due to the business model being used. Many concentrated on drama and strife, while others were insistent on celebrity news. But very few offered a clean interface that concentrated more on the content than the sponsors.

We all know that for years print news has been diminished in its role as the “keeper of the fourth estate” while broadcast news became a hodgepodge of stories with the occasional tragedy thrown in between the local hot dog eating contest and the annual spelling bee.

WE NEED CHANGE

The world moves fast but we want to slow things down and create content that is useful and not favor dramatic pieces about strife or division. In these trying times we try to show the good things happening with our friends, family and neighbors. Our goal is to provide educational information and thought-provoking stories that help us navigate through sea-changes in industry, higher-education, and globalization. When readers pay our low price of $24 per year, they can be certain to find stories and interviews that will both entertain and edify. And unlike other news sites, we don’t block the reading of news even if you don’t become a paying customer.

Instead we provide additional services that enable paying customers to use multiple areas to interact with other customers. These include Group and Individual Chat, Public and Private Events, Polls, Surveys and Questionnaires, Groups and Forums and interactive Comments. By limiting content creation to paid customers we hope to have a more enjoyable place to discuss the news of the day. We do try to moderate comments, posts, though we rely on the DOWNVOTE system where if content has 2x the amount of DOWNVOTES, then the content would be subject to replacement. And more importantly we offer interviews and podcasts with Ceiling Breakers in all industries and at all levels.


Ad-Free Independence


THE FUTURE WAITS FOR NONE

THIS IS THE BEGINNING

In 2012, the idea of AutoSOFT was born. It was meant to be a beacon to people who have never seen a minority-owned and operated software company. Admittedly, it’s been a long hard road with technology changing over time and enabling (sometimes requiring) new first party tools for implementing the feature sets we envision. The AutoZINE came about two years later as discontinued tools caused a cancellation of a mobile app.

AutoZINEs are meant to be a packaged software application for the web to allow content creators to create compelling content quickly whether webcasts, blogs, photo slideshows or full-blown 10 page in-depth analysis with charts, graphs and images. With all the advances in technology and changes in consumption patterns, news and information sites must be as agile. AutoZINEs achieve (we hope) this agility by not tying to a particular type of content but being diverse in coverage of things available in the Information Age we live in.

When you invest in an AutoZINE, you are able to make quick changes in your layout without disturbing your content. You can even request custom layouts though we recommend any layout be sparse enough to concentrate on the current content rather than attempt to have as much on one page as possible. You can also easily add, remove and administer an unlimited amount of content creators and the ability to assign editors who have the ability to publish content to ensure all content can be verified (or not) for accuracy and correctness.

SECURE AND CUSTOM

Though this site does not use the feature, content publishers can even limit the amount of content an anonymous user for any customizable period of time. Content Publishers can also select pre-defined templates, customize, update or retain any branding currently used. Our terms are very fair (1) and include upgrades, maintenance and issue response.

And most importantly security is of paramount importance and AutoZINEs have gone through extensive security and penetration testing for all current vulnerabilities with currently zero detected breaches after nearly one year. So your content and consumers will be safe. We recommend only using the default user registration template as it limits identifiable information while still allowing for internal analytics on user preferences and content consumption metrics.

Future editions of AutoZINEs will include tele-conferencing, live streaming and advanced publishing workflows to enable full control over the display of your content. The current workflow mechanism is designed to be simple and to use from a central point in the site enabling publishers to vary their approvals based on importance of content or any imposed deadlines.

Another major hurdle in our journey was the proliferation of what can be called bad actors (we don’t use the word troll, here) who tend to disrupt online conversations that are in the public “domain.” After researching 100s of pay-wall-driven and ad-driven sites we concluded that news can’t be the focus for either so we concentrated on features to make a community that is safe from intrusion but still allows consumers to voice their opinions and consume information.


This is the Beginning


THE FIRST GOAL

EBON FEMME

Initially, EbonFEMME was meant to be a placeholder for a new initiative but as we are also consumers of news we felt that we should make it more than that, highlighting our voice to the world while providing though-provoking content and allowing content partners to reflect their opinions in a space that doesn’t question content only intent. This launch edition is geared towards introducing diverse topics and allow marketing to influencers and even content publishers looking for efficient creation and publication of their content.

For those who don’t want the hassle of setting up and maintaining their own site, EbonFEMME offers profit-sharing or convenient plans to enable less up-front resources for your own site. The largest cost is storage and we use shared storage to save content publishers money.

EbonFEMME also, like its soon-to-be cousins has many additional features for consumers and creators, such as live comments (v2 will be real-time), forums, chat and the ability to create events for bringing users together. In order to facilitate a peaceful environment, EbonFEMME only allows access to special features upon purchasing a subscription for the small fee of $24 per year.

FORWARD THINKING

No one has ever gotten rich off of news but there is more than money. There is a well-informed and thoughtful society to consider; which is more the goal of EbonFEMME and the AutoZINE content system. Rather than having a monolithic presence like WordPress, the AutoZINE system allows any content creator host their content where they want with full control over every aspect of the site, including, comment voting to remove questionable content and no partial or biased moderation.

We want our community to express itself. Sometimes that expression may include “adult” words but we will not force changes since you are paying to have your opinion posted. Of course blatant violations of the rights of others or attacks on a person’s character will subject the comment to a removal vote whereby the text is changed to reflect intent. By using a democratic form of up and down voting, the entire community can weigh in on the value of the post or comment.

So click here to begin the journey to Owning, Sharing and Using YOUR NEWS… If you just want to read the news, you can view as many articles as you'd like but the special features require either adveritising dollars, which we shun, or paid memberships and donations. We feel the low price of $24 per year gives you more than just news, it gives you a community you cna chat with away from trollish comments or suggestions. Where you can get to know people from all over build your own network of friends and maybe even business partners.

Support REAL News

In today's world of meme news and drama channels, we found it important to create a news and information outlet that covers more than celebrities and politics. To do that we need our readers to help us avoid using ad-serving and click bait stories.

We accept any amount you find appropriate and larger donations will receive membership and/or extensions. We allow all to view the news but we want you to make AutoZINEs your community so it's designed with Chat areas, Forums, Events and Comments. Of course storing content isn't free so we need our community to support itself when possible. Thank You The Editors
