Guru Magazine Zero Issue Review

 So i recently saw a twitter update that took me to the Guru Magazine introduction page.  The article essentially talked about how in this new digital age we have entered a "new digital age of ignorance" and frankly I agree.  In a world where with a few key strokes you can determine if that questionable remedy for a stomach ache is a hoax or not, people rarely do so.  They note that this is because science is synonymous with complexity and boredom.  They created Guru Magazine to be a eZine that presents science in a way that is approachable to the general public.  As I browsed the zero issue that is available on their site for free (zero issue) I was very happy with their approach.

 They split the information into sections such as tech, science, food and mind and have short but engaging articles.  The overall layout feels like a lifestyle magazine as they intended and the use of pictures and graphics really gives the whole thing a nice flow.  If you have ever been interested in science but found it a bit out of your grasp I suggest you keep an eye out for the next articles (, or better yet follow them on twitter @GuruMag.
