48HR Mag

In contrast to yesterday’s link to Dan’s piece on the San Fransisco Panorama,the 48 Hour Magazine looks to create a rapid, crowd-sourced print magazine in two days:

Welcome to 48 Hour Magazine, a raucous experiment in using new tools to erase media’s old limits. As the name suggests, we’re going to write, photograph, illustrate, design, edit, and ship a magazine in two days.

Here’s how it works: Issue Zero begins May 7th. We’ll unveil a theme and you’ll have 24 hours to produce and submit your work. We’ll take the next 24 to snip, mash and gild it. The end results will be a shiny website and a beautiful glossy paper magazine, delivered right to your old-fashioned mailbox. We promise it will be insane. Better yet, it might even work.

    Contrast: like black and white. But the digital revolution left us straddling the threshold with one foot in each medium. Five toes in the factory of digital immediacy and the other five in the slow-boiling perfection of print.

    Not that one is better than the other. They’re different. But we live in both worlds now.
