HARD NEWS Advisory: It's Coming Along

HARD NEWS Advisory: It's Coming Along

Hello all,

A quick update on the new Hard News: we're probably still about three weeks from launch, but you are most welcome to go and look at the placeholders at:


We'll launch with a small lineup of bloggers: myself, Chad Taylor, Debra Daley and Damian Christie. You'll like them.

I would also like to thank the many people who emailed me after the last Hard News bulletin. It was gratifying, and sometimes moving, to be reminded of how people feel about Hard News.

Cheers, RB

PS: There was one terrible omission from the thankyou list - Peter Belt, former publisher of the e-zine The Plug, who not only carried Hard News for a while, but even managed to pay me. How could I have forgotten that?!
