Have you ever wondered why everything on the Internet looks the same? Isn’t that weird?
Useless Press is a publishing collective that creates eclectic Internet things. We work with our contributors to publish projects that exist outside of today’s endless churn of nearly-indistinguishable online content; that exist for their own purpose, or for no purpose at all.
Useless Press is based in New York. We publish new things on a regular basis, around one per month.
The editors are:

We are always looking for new contributors. If you have a good idea for a project write us at email@example.com.
We accept work at all stages of development and provide technical and editorial support. We help contributors fill the gaps in their things, whether in design, coding, presentation or concept. We look for contributors in a wide variety of fields, especially people whose work doesn’t regularly find expression in code. One of our goals is to facilitate unlikely collaborations.
Many Useless Press projects live on websites. However, we publish projects of any kind, as long as they can exist on the web in some form.
Some examples of things we would be glad to publish:
randomized controlled trials
exotic data sets
annoying Twitter bots
bots in general
really long manifestos
rejected academic papers
long-form investigative journalism
recently unearthed archives
three dimensional renderings
criticism and hate mail
extremely elaborate and difficult to realize projects
emotional Facebook posts
privately run cellular networks
novel utopian infrastructure projects
hot linked images
energy drinks (or food in general)
