Leveraging Synergy Across Multiple Platforms 

Wednesday, Jun 24 2009
This is a nice story about the Internet: Hamburger Eyes, a magazine that prints black-and-white photos with the aesthetic spirit, sans the corporate sponsorship, of Life and National Geographic — and they are spectacular pictures, too, gritty and touching and a little more gritty — had a money issue. It didn’t have much. So editor Ray Potes, thinking Web 2.0, hooked up with donation site Kickstarter and asked fans to help him. He added a subtle threat: If they didn’t reach $3,000, the issue wouldn’t go out. The issue is going out. In three days, he had his $3,000. In nine days, $4,000. Local people using the Internet to support and fund a great magazine in record time: back pat! Now, the rest of you can get in on the act by attending “Exodus,” a photo show celebrating transcendence, transmogrification, and the release of issue No. 13.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
