Mag for the MySpace generation

This item is for those students on the post graduate periodical journalism course at the University of Westminster this year who wanted the course project to be a “magazine for the MySpace generation”. They failed to get enough support from fellow students so we ended with an excellent but more conventional publication.

Now Jeff Jarvis over at BuzzMachine records that: “Reports are swirling that News Corp. is considering starting a magazine out of MySpace, with Nylon as a partner.” He quotes AdAge as saying: “The editorial mix would likely cover standout MySpace members and their interests, from music to their social scenes.”

If News International, its partners or a rival wants young journalists with some good ideas for their project, I can put them in touch.
