Q: "Hey Strikethru, whatever happened to that half-baked idea you had for a typecasting journal?"
A: Having been employed by a software development company for a decade, I tend to think of projects in terms of technical specs. There are a lot of ideas floating around out there about the typecasting journal, mostly marooned in the comments of this post (which incidentally explains the project if you have no idea what I'm talking about), and so I have moved them to a spec that will serve as the planning document for the journal.
If you are interested in this project:
- Read the spec.
- Send me an e-mail if you want editing permissions to the spec. I would like it to be a collaborative document.
- Sign up to contribute to the first issue here. Please use the categories listed in the spec document when you fill out the category. Deadline to sign up is April 30, 2009. This is not the deadline to submit, it is just the deadline to commit to a submission for planning purposes.
- Each issue will have a theme, and the theme is not yet determined. In other words, don't start writing yet. If you have already, let me know. This may give me an idea for a theme.
- I will use the submission sheet to gauge interest/feasibility in the journal-- if we have enough contributions, we'll go forward. Otherwise, we'll call this one a fine idea that had no wings, and move on to other harebrained schemes.
