Friend of SMITH and creator of the for-now-frozen storytelling site the Fray Derek Powazek and his Flickr’y wife, Heather Champ (she of the legendary The Mirror Project), have launched 8020 Publishing.
The first project of 8020 is JPG magazine, where amateur shutterbugs post their shots, the community votes on the best ones (organized by theme), and the kids with the most cake get $100 and their work in the print version of JPG (pubbed six times a year). Groovy stuff. Read more deets here, via a report from GigaOM.
In other photo news…SMITH editor John House says: SMITH + Flickr = Tabblo, a new words + images storytelling, photo-sharing site in the unstoppable spirit of Web 2.0. (Note: The term Web 2.0 is precariously close to being banned during dinner in my house.)
