JPG 2.0 magazine

Derek Powazek – The Real Story of JPG Magazine. a big internet drama that I didn't bother to read about until now. it's about fuzzy levels of ownership and control, and not being businesslike (for better or for worse). but, cool: JPG magazine was first created from web submissions, but the next step was opening up the publishing process to the community. which turned into a sort of community magazine creation tool. What an awesome awesome idea! I'm sure there are other contexts where this would make a lot of sense: not necessisarily just for magazines, but online-community-created compilations of information that get printed? awesome.
