The Purpose

With the creation of the World Wide Web, publishing business models and content distribution businesses are changing faster than ever. Many content creators are leveraging search and using blogging and other publishing formats to reduce certain types of publishing to a vanity level. Will traditional media survive? In what form? From newspaper, to radio, to television, and now the internet, information exchange has never been faster. Not only is information moving quickly, but there are many more people fighting for attention. To fight back against falling marketshare many of the leading news sources are now relying on their customers to help create their content.

We believe that open communication channels are important for democracy to function. We would like to help an innovative student push the boundaries of traditional media.
