  1. oh man zines, the best form of publishing ever. I read more zines per year than any other medium, maybe even more than blogs. The SF zine fest is always great! i want more electronics zines though, i’v been working on an idea for a while called “expect resistance” which would be a quick how to for beginner solderers.

    I also contribute to hack this zine: and Slingshot!, which has a groovy organizer every year!

  2. Looks like a lot of fun. Working on my zine, Going Gaga: Artinformationoise, was one of the great high points of my life. It’s basically how/why I became a writer, how I hooked up with Boing Boing and Mondo 2000, and where I found many of the close friends I still hang out with today. What’s not to love? Nice to see that people are still producing ’em.

  3. Pit Report… was my fav.
