Skewed was  one of the first internet periodicals.  It flourished with hundreds of thousands of unique visitors per month in the heyday of 2000-2004.  It garnered media and creative attention with its combination of original fiction (including plays, novellas, and short stories), music reviews, music, photography, software reviews, political commentary, animation, illustration, and more.

It had high points such as: recognition from the family of John Lee Hooker on his death, a poignant eye-witness account of 9/11 chronicled immediately after the tragedy, and the debut of exclusive MP3's, plays, serialized novels before that was even a thing.

It had low points like: server outages because we had no idea what kind of attention it would get and accidental deletions of content because we had no idea what we were doing.

No matter what, the experiment was a success in its one major goal: to provide a space for friends and strangers to collaborate and create.


It's gone now, but it was pretty cool while it lasted.
