“I’ve always had standards about writing well. There is art in this business. There is potentially great art.”
--Gay Talese


journalism as a productive act

The old saying that democracy depends on a free press has never been more true.

Gloomy predictions of what will happen to newspapers and public service broadcasting notwithstanding, a lot is also happening in the newer world of online journalism.

The web is its own medium, and is social and non-physical in interesting and novel ways. But more importantly still, it also affords us countless new ways of telling stories, so we're committed to using our expertise in design, technology, communication and entrepreneurship to make a contribution to the future of journalism.

As such, we're proud members of Not on the Wires, which functions as a platform for ongoing research and a community of people with interesting ideas and hopes for the the future of journalism.
