One of the features of this site, once it launches, will be Q&As with some of the journalists and media types who are leading the innovations and startups in the industry. I have tentative commitments from journalists on the East and West coasts to answer questions for the blog.
Meantime, the Minneapolis-based news site, MinnPost, launched today. The design is sharp and attractive, and it marks one of the few metro-based online news outlets in the nation. In an editor's note, Joel Kramer, the founder of the site, said: "MinnPost's goal is to develop a sustainable business model that will support high-quality journalism for this community." It's a site to keep an eye on.
