Tactile Zine

What is this?

I came up with this idea late late late one night at like 0400. If there are hardcore fanzines covering esoteric topics and interviews, why couldn't I adopt this for Geekhack? I've always wanted to showcase the DIY culture on Geekhack. Making Stuff Together and DIY is something that continues to keep me reading the forums. For me it's the most important aspect of Geekhack. Even though I post a lot elsewhere, MST is my favorite forum. Time to make it shine.

I've created Tactile Fanzine. It is a print-only DIY magazine or 'zine which I've created, written for, interviewed for, and done art work for. My goal is to create content covering Making Stuff Together and the DIY culture on Geekhack. By me, for us.

I don't really want to make this zine a supplement to Making Stuff Together and put guides in it. But I think by just having these suggested to me, means that the zine is already doing it's job. Turning people on to MST and the maker-culture here means people will contribute more to this sub-forum and DIY and building. I see this more of a spotlight and less of a supplement.

Each Volume will have a theme. For example, Volume One focuses on why the community likes the sub-forum and why we all should read it more. It also has some lovely interviews. For now I'll probably concentrate on interviews but this may change.

In true DIY fashion, the magazines are printed on regular office 8.5" x 11" sheets; folded in half and printed landscape. It's easiest for me to do it this way at the moment. Nothing glossy or fancy for now. I'm trying to make sure every Volume has a sticker with it as well.

This zine will always be in hard copy. I may make an accompaniment website but the main focus will be a hard copy. Don't ask me why this isn't a blog. That's not the goal of this project.


I'd interested, how can I get a copy?

TL:DR - "I want in" isn't helpful to me. Please help me help you and tell me exactly what you want. Then PM me your address. Thank you.

This is free. I'm offering:
1) A single copy of any Volume, past or present (you can get multiple past Volumes if you like)
2) A spot on the mailing list (you'll receive all future Volumes)
3) Both 1 and 2

If you join the mailing list, it's like a subscription to a regular magazine except you don't need to pay me. If you would just like a single Volume like just a copy of Volume 1, that's also an option. You could also get previous Volumes or current Volume and join the mailing list. Please just post in this thread or PM me and explicitly say what you'd like.

So yes you can get an older Vol like Vol 1 if you missed out the first few runs. I only print them in runs because it makes my life easier. But I can always print more of anything if you just tell me what you want.

Yes I will send these out internationally.


If this is print only, why is there this thread?

This thread will be a place where we can talk about the 'zine, contribute ideas, ask for copies, and show off pictures.

I'd really like to know what you all might want to see in the magazine and if you're interested in it at all.


Feedback

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, idea, hate mail, fan mail, etc please please please let me know. I really need feedback since I've never done something like this.

If you'd like to contribute or have ideas please let me know. I'm mainly looking for people who would want to write a little article the theme of the Volume, an article about their project or a project in general, and anyone who would want to contribute artwork.

You can contact me through PMs, email me tactile(no space)fanzine (at) gmail (dot) com, @mosh518 on Instagram, letter, or any other means. I'm easy.


Donations

I have been very fortunate enough to have people who have wanted to or have donated money. If you feel the urge to donate, please see the link below. I promise that all money donated will go directly to this project (probably towards stamps since they're $0.49 for CONUS and $1.20 for international) and you are more than welcome to donate *any* amount. With the increase in USPS costs, I am now more reliant on donations than ever before. Please consider donating. Please send the money as gift to CPTBadAss@geekhack.org. If you're uncomfortable with gifting money to me, please use the donation link below. Keep in mind that Paypal takes a portion of these donations.



Please note that if you do decide to do a monthly donation, this shouldn't be looked at as a subscription. I cannot guarantee when a Volume comes out due to my job and other obligations. This explains further how your money is used.

Special thanks to anyone who has donated. I have something planned as a thank you.

My goal is to push out a Volume once a month. It took me about three weeks to go from the initial idea to printing twenty five Volume 1s. As of November 2015, it seems I've slowed to one Volume about every 2 months.

Great idea!

Wait, are there any shrinks watching this forum?
The reason this is such a big deal is, we have this big messy wonderful country where we fight with each other all the time. But nobody tells us what to think, what to fight about, what to vote for except other Americans. And that's wonderful and often painful. But we're talking about a foreign government that using technical intrusion, lots of other methods, tried to shape the way we think, we vote, we act. That is a big deal. And people need to recognize it. It's not about Republicans or Democrats. They're coming after America, which I hope we all love equally. They want to undermine our credibility in the face the world. They think that this great experiment of ours is a threat to them. So they're going to try to run it down and dirty it up as much as possible. That's what this is about and they will be back. Because we remain -- as difficult as we can be with each other -- we remain that shining city on the hill. And they don't like it.

I will send you all a copy as soon as I can. PM Train collecting addresses will be sent out soon. I'll be going out of town for a few days this week. If your name isn't on this list, I've probably already sent you a copy (PunksDead) or I missed your name.



I hesitate to call this a subscription because to me that implies a regular schedule and you paid me for that regularly scheduled magazine. At the moment I'd rather keep it DIY, low-key, and free except for donations (which I appreciate immensely). I'd rather call it a mailing list if you'd like to get copies of it every time I make a Volume.

Thanks for the support so far. I've been really giddy about this but I didn't know when the right time was to share it.

Also if you'd like a copy and/or you'd like to be added to the mailing list, please state that clearly :).

Looks like I still have about ten left. I need to recount how many of the Vol 1, First Run I have left.

I can always print more so if people want to see old copies, I can always print and send off new ones. They just won't have stickers. First Runs I'm aiming to always have a sticker. Subsequent Runs or one-off prints will just be the 'zine.

I think voluntary donations are appropriate.
I think it would be great to have a feature project each issue. Details on the build process, challenges, innovations, etc. This may duplicate some of what would be in a thread on GH, but a well written and organized article is so much better than a thread. Wouldn't necessarily have to be new projects. Revisiting old projects in this format would be quite interesting and informative.

That's a good idea. I've got a few people in mind for this and I've actually been chatting with a member who suggested that they'd like to do this with their current project.



Run 1 of Volume 1 is all gone. Thanks for the interest everyone. If you'd like a copy of Volume 1, I can print more. Please post here and let me know if you'd like a copy of Volume 1 and/or to be added to the mailing list.

Hey cptn
I just found this link in the (what you received in the mail today) thread. I love the idea and as someone new to GH and still a little unsure of my place and how I can better fit in/help contribute things like this are great. It lets people know there's a lot of stuff going on other than artisan sales and SP/GMK key set GB's (not that I don't love those) but I'm more interested in the DIY movement here And in the process of aquiring the things i need (plus reading up all i can on soldering,PCB's,lubing mixtures switch differences etc.)I would love to support this in anyway and thank you for taking the time to birth this project. Please let me know if I can contribute in anyway as I'm really just learning a lot of this myself I wouldn't have much to offer or add to the technical aspects of things but I'd love to be of service!

I'm all over this with my nostalgia-boner for my old punk fanzines.  A shame I didn't hear about this until now.  I request to be added to the list to receive the next volume of a library photocopied zine which makes abundant use of cut and pasted letters from magazines like some pre-computer ransom letter. 

PM and we can discuss addresses and donations.  We can also discuss reanimating the corpse of Steven Wells and giving it a HHKB to see how often he complains about how they changed where the caps lock was located.

Oh man I can't believe I just saw this.  I'd like to subscribe for sure!

Just realized why this resonates with me so much; I was an avid 2600 reader in the early days and this reminds me soooo much of that!

Edit: and I'd love a copy of No.1 if there's a rerun

I'm super glad I was able to get in on the first run of the Tactile Fanzine!

Gotta say, I really enjoyed reading it! Print just feels so personal. Thanks so much CPTBadAss for putting this thing together and for spreading the love for DIY!  Can't wait til the next one comes out. :thumb:
