Backed by Snapchat, online magazine Real Life is a new platform for earnest discussion around the interaction between society, social media and technology. So no reviews, no news and no industry gossip.
The site’s editor is social media theorist Nathan Jurgenson. The magazine aims to publish one essay every weekday and Jurgenson is keen to attract contributors who don’t consider themselves to be technology writers. Recent posts have covered subjects such as the emotional constraints of emojis and the relationship between beauty apps, computer vision and the golden ratio.
“We will describe the technology world – specifically how that industry shapes the world we live in today,” explains Jurgenson. “To that end, we will address the political uses of technology, including some of the worst practices inside and outside the technology industry.” Serious face.
