Fight Media cutbacks – think big, start small…

January 12, 2009

From small acorns grow magnificent oaks, so they say…and judging by this item today from the Guardian team, the saying may well be true for this digital media venture which I picked up. A wonderful story about battling Recession with a winning media vision.

Writer and editor Steven Watson has started to gain ground with his independent magazine online subscription service Stack, claiming that the niche indie magazine market is one which will always have a small but perfectly formed brigade of Raving Fans from which to build his fledgling media-based business. And I hope it gains positive ground in 2009.

Good to see an upbeat publishing story, amidst the recent jobs cuts, redundancies and newsroom staff slashes.
