Digital Evolution: Scoop Independent News Launches "Operation Chrysalis"
From today Scoop is beginning a process of public consultation with the political, business and civil society groups it has served for the past 15 and a half years.
"It is hoped that in time - with new leadership and increased community engagement - the chrysalis will incubate a new kind of Scoop, one which can sustainably continue Scoop's Mission 'to be an agent of positive change'", says Scoop Founder, Editor and Publisher Alastair Thompson.
