Welcome all Zinesters and Zinephiles
This page is open to anyone involved in zine-making and distribution with ties to Noisebridge.
Below is info and images for ZiP, a Noisebridge-inspired Zine in Progress conceived in December, 2011.
The Inaugural Chapter of ZiP MegaZine is Now Online

View online, or download + print yourself here!
You may also order print copies for $7.00 apiece. That covers our print cost with a small amount leftover which may help us recover some of the cost of printing the first batch. We think it's a fair price. ZiP is 60 pages in length, with color covers and an additional 4-page color spread inside. And the articles are diverse and good enough to read, even.
Contribute to ZiP02 (release date: April 1st, 2012) by subscribing to the ZinesFromOuterSpace mailing list (linke below), or message firstname.lastname@example.org. Help us start up weekly brainstorming and inspiration sessions for ZiP and all things Zinetic at Noisebridge. You can contribute anything you want. ZiP can grow and change in limitless ways!
ZiP: Zine in Progress (sometimes abbreviated ZZ) is a hacker-friendly, fully autonomated, frequently festive, quasi-quarterly megazine, created and edited by Tony Longshanks LeTigre and the mysterious personage known as The Whimsical Wizard of ZiP (aka Whimzy).
ZiP now has its own site, where the full text of every issue of the zine will be available to read free or download and print yourself: ZiPZineWeb
ZiP launched its first issue, 7DC, on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, 2012, with a Zine Release Microparty at Noisebridge called My Noisy Valentine
