A Magazine Concept for our Instant Age

This is an extraordinary concept:  putting a magazine together in 48 hours with all guest contributions.  The 48 Hour Magazine inaugural issue is underway right now, and you can watch live feed of the staff on Ustream and follow their progress on Twitter.

They announced the theme at noon today.  Submissions are open until 4:00 PM on Saturday.  The editors will then, “snip, mash and gild,” the chosen pieces into a, “shiny website and a beautiful, glossy paper magazine.”

I am thinking about submitting a piece; the first theme is Hustle and I have a catchy idea.  If my work gets selected, I will let you all know first.  This is going to be fun … and, yes, I really am that much of a writer nerd!
