NowPublic cited as most likely to succeed

3 Apr

I was sorry to see Scribblesheet close its doors recently.  In these early days of participatory media we need lots of people trying lots of things.  John Ndege who ran the venture acknowledged the space’s challenges but was very gracious in announcing his departure from the space.  He writes:

“Now Public has cleverly attempted to position itself as a news broker. Citizen journalists provide it with content and they sell it on to wire services like AP. I assume some of this money then goes back to the original writer. This is the best business model I have seen around citizen journalism and the one I think most likely to succeed. Simple display advertising won’t cut it.”
