Role of media company changing?

Dilemma: facilitator, aggregator or publisher?

Basic principles: always be edited under yr brand

A solution: multi-brand approach = more freedom

Despite the hype & changing technology environment which sees increasingly fragmented, informal media, there is one constant: People want quality

In the digital era, perhaps it’s media’s role to cut through clutter & noise . It was the same as the first newspaper rolled off the press, it’s the same now, and will be the same forever. Media are gatekeepers and guardians of quality.

We realised we could convince many of these influential people to blog with us , but not do a column. Why?

blog Write on what you want, how long you want, however frequently you want, less commitment? “By invitation 2.0”? column Deadline, often write on set topic, set day for publishing, set amount of words, more pressure? more commitment?
