State of the Personal Magazine
This — more than any other time — is the age of personal expression, for good or bad. Facebook, MySpace, blogging, camera phones, reality tv, etc., etc., etc., have created a worldwide generation of shrewd and shameless self marketers. The internet has become a far reaching and cheap forum for personal projects, visions, and ideas. The niche genre of personal magazines, existing outside the realm of the commercial hoard, has been experimenting with this ethic for years. But, can it, or does it, still have a place in our ever more electronic world? Coupe Magazine chatted (ironically, via email) with a couple of magazine mavericks, Neil Feineman (original editor of RayGun) in LA and Brit magazine guru Jeremy Leslie in the uk, about the state of the personal magazine. Check it out.
