Check this out: I was recently browsing kickstarter and I came across Matter.
Matter is an attempt by two experienced journalists, Bobbie Johnson and Jim Giles, to build a science and technology web based publication using investigative journalism.
According to their kickstarter web page:
MATTER will focus on doing one thing, and doing it exceptionally well. Every week, we will publish a single piece of top-tier long-form journalism about big issues in technology and science. That means no cheap reviews, no snarky opinion pieces, no top ten lists. Just one unmissable story.
[…] MATTER is about brilliant ideas from all around the world, whether they come from professors at MIT or the minds of mad people. But most of all, it’s about getting amazing investigative reporters to tell compelling stories.
I’ve pledged money to Matter and I’m now an official backer of the project. I believe that furthering the understanding of science and technology to all people is a cause worthy of advocating and supporting.
Before the window of opportunity closes (24th March 2012), please consider backing this project also.
