New York Magazine publishes first eBook through Byliner

According to the Nieman Journalism Lab, New York Magazine has published its first eBook, a compilation of columns and articles from the past five years as selected by readers through the nymag.com Most Popular Stories feature. They've partnered with Byliner, which does publish original work but is primarily a discovery engine for content from established writers on the web. The new eBook, "New York Magazine's Most Popular," will initially be sold through Apple's iBooks for $7.99, and through Amazon and Barnes & Noble shortly after. Revenues will be split evenly between New York Magazine and Byliner. Individual authors within the anthology will be paid a "courtesy fee," and Byliner will also sell individual articles, for which the authors will get a cut of revenues.
