Kintsugi Magazine - Sept 2017


I was recently interviewed as part of a virtual question and answer session hosted entirely on an open source social network called Mastodon.

The resulting interview was collected (along with some terrific photos by local friends) into a new online anthology called Kintsugi Magazine. The entire process was coordinated transparently over Mastodon, and I remain fascinated by how well creative minds can play nicely together when they have a common goal.

The rest of the magazine is fantastic, with original art, words, and ideas from all over the world.

Like the network which inspired it, Kintsugi Magazine is entirely free, and is available to download in ebook form from their website.

About Kintsugi Magazine

Kintsugi is a project organized and put together through social media, mainly the Mastodon network. The contributors have not met in person or face to face. Our aim here was to show that people can do good and put together something unique and different. We wanted to encourage others to come forward and do the same.
