Spanchat is set to start an online magazine called Real Life, which will publish roughly one article each weekday on the subject of technology.

Not a lot of details have been revealed yet, except that the first edition of the magazine will go out on June 27.

Snapchat employee and social media critic Nathan Jurgenson said that Real Life will publish essays, arguments, and narratives about living with technology.

“It won’t be a news site with gadget reviews or industry gossip. It will be about how we live today and how our lives are mediated by devices.”


The magazine will have editorial independence, with the editor in chief being Nathan Jurgenson. His team includes, Rob Horning, Alexandra Molotkow, Sarah Nicole Prickett, and Soraya King

The editorial team will have the final say of what goes onto the site.
