one year ago, in January 2011, I created the Golden Oldie. This new online magazine had and still has the main purpose to report about news, people and events of AEGEE’s alumni association Les Anciens. However, within a couple of weeks only, the Golden Olden became very popular also among AEGEE members, especially since this online magazine had also a section about current AEGEE affairs. Today, the Golden Oldie has 1038 fans on Facebook and a lot more people, who just read the articles now and then without pressing the famous “Like” button.
Unfortunately, due to the substantial number of AEGEE-related articles, the Golden Oldie lost its clear focus regarding Les Anciens issues. Several members of our alumni association expressed their deep concern in this matter. They asked me to avoid AEGEE topics in future. Since I created this online magazine explicitly for Les Anciens, I feel very sorry in case my articles about AEGEE disturbed you. In order to avoid bigger harm, the Golden Oldie will not report about AEGEE-related issues anymore.
- The AEGEEan. This marvellous AEGEE online magazine managed to get 700 fans in just four months since it was launched. The very dedicated team around its chief editor Stephanie Müller creates and publishes several great articles every week. You can find The AEGEEan here: http://www.zeus.aegee.org/magazine. Check also its Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/aegeean.
- The Golden Times. This new online portal is my latest private initiative. It is a living AEGEE history magazine, with intensive coverage of all Agoras ever, milestone moments and also the people that shaped AEGEE. It is not part of the AEGEE or Les Anciens structures, just a personal online project that I had in mind for already ten years. Since golden times are not only in the past, but also in constant making, I report also about Agoras and a few selected major AEGEE issues. In addition, you can also find my articles for the Golden Oldie there. After all, it would be a shame just to publish them once and in only one place. You find the Golden Times here: http://www.central.aegee.org/~erth/goldentimes/.
