Everybody has a different idea of an ideal science magazine but how close could we get to something that satisfied a core group of science magazine enthusiasts by starting from scratch and reinventing what people do.
I might have a chance to execute on a plan and would love help in designing what a science magazine for a modern world with modern technology would look like. So far, we are seeing plenty more of the same being ported to new devices but no real rethinking from scratch. Or at least no implementation of those ideas.
This could be a good topic for a weeklong science writers’ retreat that a few of us have discussed. Or perhaps we can just crowdsource it on a wiki. I’m keen to chat with people who might like to dig deep in the process of designing a new magazine.
