Our awesome Girl Crusher Jenna Wortham has penned a column today for The New York Times about the resurgence of zines, especially within a techie population. 

There are two things to note:

1. Where can I find a copy of Lindzine—a tribute to Lindsay Lohan? 

2. Jenna writes: “Their creators say zines offer a respite from the endless onslaught of tweets, blog posts, I.M.’s, e-mail and other products of digital media.” 

This could not be more true for Girl Crush. Jenna and I wanted to create something that felt ephemeral or fleeting, something that could only be held in your hands. There is something about how permanent the Web can be—the stickiness of Google gets to be tiresome or oppressive. So yay for zines!
