What is Handshake Magazine?
Handshake Magazine is a visionary fusion of the online and print worlds.
Handshake is not just a magazine or a website. It is also an ARG (alternate reality game) and a social media hub that uses the internet to connect with its audience in a revolutionary way. We encourage our readers to go on missions, solve puzzles, and report back to us. With Handshake, you don’t just read the magazine. You are a part of the magazine.
Created and produced by graduate journalism students at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, the magazine and website target 20-somethings with an interest in geek, online, and gaming cultures.
This blog serves as our site’s home page. During the next six weeks, the site will transform from a simple WordPress theme into a customized blog and a proof-of-concept for Handshake‘s social-media and gaming ambitions.
Welcome to the community. Let the Game begin.
