StarText began as a means of simply delivering electronic newspaper content to subscribers, but it quickly evolved into a unique electronic magazine. Although the service only managed to attract about 2,000 subscribers, it created a loyal group of columnists who acted as unpaid columnists who had paid to be subscribers. Their columns were only in text and originally without color, but the content of the columns were original, varied and of a sufficiently reasonable standard to maintain their own readership. Because these columns were basically under the control of their creators the originality, scope and depth of the information presented was both unique and extensive.

Famous quotes containing the words magazine and/or electronic:
“I long for a land that does not yet exist, a place where women are valued both for their intellects and their motherhood and where choices between career and nurturing are somehow less stark.”
—Where Mothers Matter, New York Times Magazine (February 20, 1994)
“Sometimes, because of its immediacy, television produces a kind of electronic parable. Berlin, for instance, on the day the Wall was opened. Rostropovich was playing his cello by the Wall that no longer cast a shadow, and a million East Berliners were thronging to the West to shop with an allowance given them by West German banks! At that moment the whole world saw how materialism had lost its awesome historic power and become a shopping list.”
—John Berger (b. 1926)
