I got an email from a guy who wants to start up a maker-related
newsletter/zine in KW. He's looking for people interested in
contributing writing or ideas.
You can email him directly or drop into our IRC channel (#kwartzlab on
freenode) and talk to d0c.

I am interested in starting an underground newspaper of sorts. based
in the KW region. This would be called K-Wire and be created,
published, printed and distributed with the DIY ideas of old in mind,
possibly with a modern twist. With the influx of blogs and social
media, I'm wondering if a newsletter of this sort would gain any sort
of momentum and am fully aware this could be a one-off type thing. I'm
prepared to face that reality and am more concerned with the fun and
expressive output it would yield for the time being.
A front-back premier issue is being designed currently and should be
available by the end of the year.
A project like this needs help and might be interesting enough to
people other than me, so I would like to invite members of Kwartzlab
for submissions, ideas and pretty much anything else required. I am a
founding (and former) member of Hamilton's ThinkHaus, so I am well
versed in what hackerspaces are all about. At the very least I would
like to generate more exposure for the local hackerspace and am
prepared to offer a 1/6 page ad for the use of kwartzlab for free.
Thanks, hope to hear from you soon.
