Want to help make a Volume of Tactile Zine? Like taking pictures? Remember when dates in the bottom of pictures was a thing? Everyone is invited to help out if youíre interested! Read on below for more info!

As Iíve said before, Iím going to be away from geekhack for about a month; maybe a little more. Iíve been working on a zine called Tactile for much of 2015 and my work on that will have to go on hiatus while Iím away. Some of the readership has suggested that it would be fun to have a project or something to keep the momentum going while Iím gone. So Iím here to drop another ridiculous idea. This didn't happen while I was gone but I'd like to move forward with it and organize it.

Iím going to crowdsource a Volume of the zine which will be based on pictures. But not just any pictures. I want the photos to be from disposable cameras. The ones you bought when you were like fourteen and they had like twenty something shots. In the corner there was a little date code? Youíd hope you took some decent flicks and couldnít find out until you developed and printed them. When I go home, my mom breaks out the physical picture books and weíll look at little Captain Badass when he was a tot. Itís really fun and enjoyable.



Think this is like circa í98. It was kinda grainy and itís a picture of a picture. Glorious


Anyways Iíve got jdcarpe, BlueNalgene, and HoffmanMyster signed up for the initial people to start the project. Iíll be mailing them some Fuijifilm Quicksnap cameras. It is then up to anyone who is interested, hopefully some of the readership from Tactile will join but itís open to everyone, to take pictures for this Volume. The pictures need to have a tangential relationship to keyboards and keyboard accessories. But Iím not going to dictate what Iím looking for. I want the people involved in the project to figure out all the details and what they wanna do. If you want to take 27 pictures of Clacks and a Korean custom? Cool. If you want to take 9 shots of 3 diff boards then mail it to a friend or someone who signs up and is interested? Cool. If you want to go to Walmart and take pictures of their keyboards behind the register? Cool. This is up to anyone who wants to be involved. If thereís no organization, Iíll just make a collage of any good pictures and throw some words together. But Iím hoping someone comes up with really sick sub-projects. Think of me as like the curator of Post Secret or Humans of New York. Iíd like to just be here to facilitate this.



Weapon of choice for this encounter


When I return, Iíll figure out shipping and how to develop the pictures. Iíll put the zine together as the project members have instructed me to do. Iíll probably add a few words. Then Iíll make the zine. The project participants will get a special edition and copies of the printed pictures. The regular edition will be sold as a pay-what-you-want Volume. Profits will go to geekhack and help fund future Tactile zine projects.

Please note that if you sign up, youíre OK with me using your creative endeavors and ideas to make money. Yes they are going to geekhack and the Tactile zine. I have mechanisms in place to ensure I do not spend the money from this Volume on stuff for me...like a KMAC or something.

So to summarize:
  • This project is to crowdsource and involved people in making a new Volume of Tactile Zine.
  • Iíll mail out disposable cameras.
  • This thread is to organize the project. I'll be leading the organization and stuff. I'm going to try and let the readership and people who are interested take the lead though.
  • When I get all the pictures, Iíll make a photo zine and sell it

If thereís any questions, concerns, comments, or anything else, please let me know in this thread or by any other means of contact you have with me. Iím really hoping this takes off and Iím excited to see how things unfold.

If you are interested in helping and joining, please post in this thread! I'll be overseeing everything now.

Things to consider:

Leader: Me

Theme: What's your favorite keyboard mod? What does modding mean to you? Is it swapping keycaps? Or maybe swapping a controller into a vintage board? Take a picture of it/them.

Title?

Artwork?

Sticker design(s)?

Should there be a theme? Sub-projects? More kit-kat pictures? A story? Photojournalism style article?

Should 6 people take 27 pictures each or should the cameras get passed around and get lots of people involved?

Does someone want to write words? Captions or a column? Intro?

If the cameras get passed around, how should the pictures be tracked?

Other ideas?

Totally down to contribute, been loving Tactile. Writing a short piece and/or snapping a few pics (but not a whole camera's worth, I like the idea of many people getting their hands on the cameras).

Would be neat to do a crowdsourced interview (like an "ask me anything" type deal), though I'm not sure who to interview (a group of people?).

Just to reiterate this, I'm going to be pretty hands off with this one. If you have an idea and want to contribute, step up and start working on it. I'm hoping someone(s) steps up as a leader. Starting next week I won't be around to organize anything. Thanks for all the interest so far :).

This didn't work out in the exact way that I wanted it to but I would still very much like to do a photography based Volume for Tactile. In the coming days, I'm going to see where the cameras are and take them back. And then I'll be reorganizing this project. If you're still interested in helping to take pictures or write some words, please keep an eye out and I'll be back with some info soon!

Can we still make it happen with the original camera people?  :|  Now that you're back and could lend some direction, it could work out much better.  I made the mistake of agreeing to lead the project when I was out of the state, which was dumb.

Ok so I think I've come up with some fun themes:

1) Day in the life of a board: Take a picture and give me a snapchat or Instagram like caption describing a part of your keyboard's day

2) Your favorite mod: What's your favorite mod on your board? Did you swap in LEDs? Add a new cable? Tell us about it.

3) Favorite keyboard in 5 words or less: Take a picture and send a description in 5 words or less


Once we or I decide on a theme, I'll locate the last camera and put some more structure around this.

I don't really have a timeline no. You're welcome to buy a camera of your own and send me the prints. I can help reimburse your costs too. Before May would be ideal for me.

Are disposables usually ISO 800? Seems kind of high.

Re: Crowdsource Vol: Pics and getting involved in making Tactile Zine

Update: Iíve decided Iíd like the theme of the pictures to be ďWhatís your favorite keyboard mod?Ē And then Iíd like a picture of that and maybe a few words. If you like swapping keycaps is a mod, lemme see it. If you have a controller that you swapped in, letís see that. Paint the plate? Sick.

Iíll be PMing people who commented on this earlier to see if theyíre still interested. If youíd like to get involved and take some picture, speak up. Iíve got tons of cameras in CONUS and I can reimburse you for buying a camera if youíre overseas.

My goal is that I will receive prints and develop the cameras I have. If I get people to write, Iíll include that as well as a short forward. Iím thinking I will get these made at a print shop and perhaps sell these for a nominal or ďpay-what-you-likeĒ cost. If youíre taking pictures or are involved, youíll get a copy for free. Iím thinking any contributors might also get a special sticker or add in too. All profits will go towards doing other things with the zine such as buying a color printer for my house or funding some of my other ideas for the zine. And of course, paying for the shipping and supplies for the main Volumes. Iím considering getting Stamps.com.

So consider this a reboot of this project and Iíll be supporting it better now that work isnít as crazy. Questions? Comments? Lemme hear them.

Oh and currently there's a few cameras floating around. Hoff, BlueNalgene, and jdcarpe have 2 each. And I believe that infiniti is shooting with one in PH and jokrik is passing one around ID.

Negative, BlueNalgene does not have a camera.  I mailed it to Engi today.  I sent both the used one and the unused one to him.
