Print-on-demand Magazines Created by Online Communities

Rex Hammock (rexblog) is pointing (again) to JPG magazine



who have taken "an online collaborative, community experience into print and about how they are displaying that certain types of creative and intellectual expression will ultimately seek a print outlet."

From the 8020 blog:

JPG and further 8020 mags work via the On-Demand-Publisher Lulu.com and they expanded in not long ago into UK and Germany.

Is anyone reading here interested to work something out?
