We are now publishing our articles to open source software repository GitHub. The idea is that anyone – programmers, researchers, creatives – will have access to our textual content for their own use, and can incorporate it into their own projects.
You will be able to take advantage of all of the features which GitHub offers, such as grabbing our entire body of content as a single, downloadable, repository; "follow" it; and synchronise our repository back to your local computer.
All of our longer articles published from March 2012 onwards will appear in out GitHub repository. We are adding older articles over time, and images too (all of our images are also available in our Flickr archive). For obvious reasons, we won't be publishing images and text which is copyright to others.
We are currently publishing articles in raw text form, with a couple of markers for imagery and page breaks. We don't publish with any kind of markup, such as HTML, although – again – let us know if you would find that useful.
The repository is structured according to our article planning system which, to the untrained eye (and even many trained ones), is a spaghetti of codes and numbers. Our commit statements will indicate the headlines of each article, making them a little easier to browse. And, of course, if you are synchronising the repository back to your local filesystem, then the whole lot is searchable.
We publish to GitHub through a Git folder in our network storage. New articles are then published to it, which are subsequently committed and pushed to GitHub. These articles are in the same state as those published to the Imperica website, although there's no reason why we could not use GitHub as a more open means of editorial development in the future. We'll let you know through @imperica as and when we do that.
Obviously, all content remains our copyright although, as is the case with our content across the Imperica website, Flickr, GitHub, and elsewhere, we are proud to serve it to you under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions for Imperica on GitHub, then do drop us a line; we would love to hear from you.

Imperica-on-Kindle. Sounds like a lovely little English village, doesn't it?
We've made Imperica available on Amazon's popular ereader. Our Kindle edition gives you the opportunity to read and digest insight, information and knowledge from one of the most talked-about publications on the web... wherever you are.
The Kindle edition is 99p per month. That's a ton of brain-filling (and sometimes brain-frying) shizzle for less than... well, practically anything these days. Signing up also gives you a two-week free trial, so subscription is hassle-free.
Getting Imperica onto your Kindle is simple. If you have registered and synchronised your Kindle with Amazon, simply visit the Imperica page on Amazon and subscribe directly from there.
Alternatively, you can directly add Imperica on your Kindle device. Simply visit the Kindle store and search for "Imperica".
New articles are automatically added to your Kindle, so you will always have the latest content from us.
The Kindle edition will feature text and images from Imperica articles, but not embedded media such as YouTube videos, banner advertising (although we still offer solutions for advertisers through the Kindle) and article comments.
Articles are delivered chronologically, so synchronisation will deliver the latest set of articles every time.
We don't take payment directly; this is entirely handled by Amazon.
If you don't have a Kindle but want a pleasant reading experience, then try Google Currents.
If you need any help or assistance regarding Imperica on the Kindle or mobile devices, then please feel free to contact us.
We offer a variety of feeds. These are full-fat, in that they offer the full body of text for each article, along with embedded media. Articles are rendered chronologically, and the most recent 25 are available in the feed.
RSS 2.0 (Good for Google Reader)
The feeds are provided in accordance with the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence and our T&Cs.
Imperica is launching a job board. It will be a fully-featured service open to direct recruitment and agencies alike. Covering the sectors that Imperica covers (arts, digital media, advertising), we are opening the board for no initial charge. Yes, it's free.
You can submit full-time and part-time vacancies (including internships), and it is initially open to any country within the EU. We won't provide a full on-site job application service just yet - that will come along in the future, depending on the success of this pilot phase.
Job board postings are free for a duration of 3 weeks and Perini Networks Europe Ltd reserves the final right to publish, decline or edit all submissions.
We look forward to your submissions. Thanks.
Part of Perini, we cover a wide range of sectors and activities within our scope. Expect to see material from advertising, art, brands, marcomms, and tech - among others. The common thread is that our articles are designed to cover some of the most insightful - and often most challenging - thinking that exists out there.
As these sectors are often covered within their own vertical sectors - silos - the shared knowledge and thoughts between them is often under-reported. Great stuff in one sector is often hard to find from another. We serve the purpose of mashing it all up.
Imperica never carries news for the sake of it. Our editorial proposition is to be the Sunday magazine to everyone else's newspaper: with...
