Although not typically thought of as a online magazine, I think that Cracked is the direction that I would take a digital magazine. The dynamics are simply superb. There are articles, columnists, forums, multimedia, and much more. This is the kind of interactive magazine that I think will catch the attention of audiences who have grown up in the digital age.

I particularly like the lists that they published. For example, my one of my favorites is "6 Pet Products that Prove Rich People Have Gone Insane". This list includes renting pet tuxes for weddings, hiring a pet party planner, mansions for the dog, and custom portraits.

If every online magazine had this kind of dynamic, I would never be able to tear myself away!

    I really love their photoplasty contests for their simplicity and how quickly you can go through them. Occasionally there is the subtle or esoteric entry and you have to cheat ("cheating" is scanning the comments section for someone asking what the entry means and someone else responding), but it's totally worth the 50-60 seconds it takes to scan through them.

    And they offer 5,000 pennies to whoever sends in the best one!
