First Google Wave Magazine

PresenTense, a hip Jewish life magazine, has launched its latest issue entirely on Google Wave, marketing it as the first magazine ever to do so. It's a bit distracting--it's never easy to read an article when you're inside a giant chat room. But I like the idea of using Wave as a full-issue magazine browser instead of having to download the PDF or click through all the individual pieces, especially for small publications. --FD


Has anyone yet done the "only on twitter" publication? (I mean, like full published that way, not a gimmick. (Or wait, it's a gimmick either way, so um...).)

Interesting idea, but doesn't it seem a month or two late?

That's a "hip" magazine?

rex: twitter would be gimmicky no matter what, but the wave idea is more than that--it works with a new format to provide a different kind of accessibility. i like it!

john: maybe a month or two too early? once wave becomes easier to navigate, people will start using it more, i think.

stein: it seemed hip in comparison to what i think of when i imagine a "jewish life" magazine...
