from Middle French magasin (“warehouse, store”), from Italian magazzino (“storehouse”), ultimately from Arabic مَخَازِن pl (maḵāzin), plural of مَخْزَن (maḵzan, “storeroom, storehouse”), noun of place from خَزَنَ (ḵazana, “to store, to stock, to lay up”). Source: Wiktionary
Since a teenager I've been fascinated by the idea of disseminating ideas and information. Originally, that would have been as a paper or magazine. I never did produce anything even such as a fanzine, though I did write for one briefly.
And now we have printing press 2.0 a.k.a. the world wide web.
The internet has long since fascinated me too. Even in its nascent era of basic static pages, it seemed wondrous to be able to read something uploaded from the other side of the world. And it was.
So here I am. Finally putting it out there. This is a London based editorial webzine, with a global reach.
However, this is not intended to be a one way street, engagement with other humans at large is my ultimate aim. You may do so via our twitter account, or by old-fashioned and much cherished email.
