Here’s the idea behind 48HR Magazine:
A group of writers, editors, and new media professionals decided to get together and crowdsource a magazine that would be produced in 48 hours. By putting out a call on Twitter, the group behind 48HR Magazine would generate buzz for a couple weeks before unveiling the theme of the first issue: hustling.
The theme was sent to all writers who signed up for 48HR’s news alerts and the challenge was for them to turn around a piece within 24 hours; the editors, in turn, would review all submissions, select pieces for inclusion, and then produce a real magazine–a digital version and a print version–within the next 24 hours.
Adam’s piece, “How to Be a Better Liar,” is available in the print version of the magazine, which can be purchased for $10 USD from MagCloud.
