Zine Time at ACCSS 2010

I had an opportunity after the Asian Conference of Computer Science in Sports (ACCSS) held at the Japan Institute of Sports Sciences to explore the functionality offered by OpenZine.

I had posted previously about Zines and had found out about OpenZine since then. “OpenZine is a publishing platform with web browser based tools that provides an easy way for anyone to make their own magazine, for free.”

I thought it might be an interesting way to share some of the social aspects of the Conference.

I used some of the photographs taken by Rafet Irmak and myself to illustrate the Zine. It was possible to add video to the Zine and I will try this next time I use the template.

There is a tweet function built into the Zine. The tweet that went out on the publication of the Zine was:

The Zine is at this link.

I apologise that the site contains adverts and I appear to be promoting a Thai Girls Dating website! I am not sure if this is because I have posted the Zine from Japan. I do apologise for any offence the adverts may cause. This feature of the Zine may limit my use of it.

The concept of the Zine is great for someone like me who has little design knowledge.
