Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has revealed a new tie-up between user-generated information site Wikia and HP’s MagCloud service that will allow users to create and print magazines.

“We are doing all kinds of things like that to think about ways to sustain this idea of participatory culture. We have no idea if this will be popular,” Wales told news agency Reuters.

Users can source content to print from the 3m web pages and more than 50,000 communities presently on Wikia, which is now making a profit for the first time since it was founded five years ago.

MagCloud enables user to produce bespoke glossy, full-bleed, full color magazine printing through a web interface that allows them to select content and do online magazine printing.

HP has also announced it is using its BookPrep digital printing service with the University of Michigan Library to make 500,000 out-of-print books available for on demand digital printing.

Earlier this year, German start-up publisher PediaPress joint forces with Wikipedia and Lightning Source to customize content from the online encyclopedia to create on-demand books.

Lightning Source is responsible for all the print, with production at both its UK site in Milton Keynes and its US facility in Pennsylvania.
