The first issue of Instant Magazine came to be over the course of a 72-hour hackathon. Okay, so 72-hours is a bit of a stretch. There was some real thought and preparation put into the magazine beforehand, but we really did write, compile, photograph, and lay-out the magazine over a 72-hour hackathon at TechRaising in 2012. When the time came for the final presentations, the Instant Magazine team stood and announced that the magazine could be downloaded through HP MagCloud’s print-on-demand service.
