Snapchat presents Real Life magazine


RLS“I’ve argued that “online” and “offline,” like “body” and “mind,” aren’t like two positions on a light switch—a perspective I’ve called digital dualism. Instead, all social life is made of both information and material; it’s technological and human, virtual and real. Together with friends and colleagues, I’ve theorized an experience of the internet based less in cyberpunk and more in body horror—and not just horror but other things too, like joy. With Real Life — which will launch on June 27 — we will be building on that perspective”.

The words of Nathan Jurgenson, editor in chief of new Real Life online magazine sound very promising. Real Life is about technology and the role of new technology in every day life. The magazine is financed by Snapchat. Jurgenson (researcher at Snapchat) promises that Real Life will be independent from Snapchat.

Real Life will publish essays, discussions and stories about life and technology. It does not intend to be a news site with gadget reviews or industry gossip. The main subject is every day life and how technology and gadgets influence our lives. Real Life intends to publish every day and will consider other formats in the future.
