SCALE ( would like to encourage you to submit
"work" for its upcoming online-only August & September issue. SCALE is a
non-profit journal that explores new modes of production and
dissemination based on open-source and networked communities.

The theme for the August/September SCALE is APOCALYPSE. As we look
forward to the coming election in November, it seems prudent to reinvest
ourselves in exploring the possibilities of our own self-destruction.
Often rooted in religious and science-fiction genres, apocalyptic themes
have proven fruitful as a framework from which to question our
collective hopes, fears, and concerns, on a local and universal scale.
In your submissions, feel free to explore and exploit your personal
imaginations of APOCALYPSE as a loose starting point for your
submission. Please keep in mind that SCALE likes to abide by terms
obliquely, and as such encourages all types of submissions, from dirty
sketches and musings, to polished images and essays.

Initially formulated within the graduate programs of the Visual Arts at
the University of California, San Diego, SCALE was created by Jon
Phillips ( and Patrick W. Deegan
( as a strategy of response to a growing
interest in developing Open Source communities across the globe. SCALE
is a monthly publication living in both PDF print and online PDF/WIKI
