FLYP, pretty damn cool online magazine technology

Check out the launch of a brand spanking new, online magazine format. I "flyp'd" through and found it pretty engaging. The electability article was refreshing, and I generally liked the tone of voice through-out.
Flyp combines video, text, animation, high-quality design and interactivity in a new kind of storytelling that blends the best from the world of print with the latest from the Web.
Give it a whirl, would love to hear what you think. Still need to do some due diligence on the team putting it together, including publisher Alan Stoga. (some BNL past strangeness) But looking at the format and the technology-- I think it is a pretty compelling use of the tools. Something like this as a joint project of some of our best known bloggers would be a pretty dynamic platform for progressive voices.
