Princeton University hosts an alumni network service called TigerNet, featuring mailing lists among other services. One such list is called Princeton-Writing and serves as a kind of coffeepot for writers.
Eric Lubell, a writer from the Princeton class of ’76, felt that alumni are not especially well served by the misnamed Princeton Alumni Weekly and determined instead to develop an interesting magazine by, for, and about Princeton alumni (as opposed to a PR organ for the university’s administration and physical plant).
The magazine, The Princeton Independent has just published its first issue exclusively on the Web (in Flash format).
Issue No. 1 celebrates the writers of Princeton’s class of 1948, and was designed by iFrancis, class of ’90.
