If you’ve been reading here – or really on most any journalism blog of late – you know I’ve been part of a team of excellent journalists who’ve been toiling away the past few months to get TBD off the ground.
Today is finally the day. Today, TBD.com has launched and all of us who joined this venture with high hopes of shaking up the news business get our chance to sink or swim.
I hope you’ll take a few minutes and take a look at the site. Let me know what you think, either here in the comments, in our live chat today or wherever you tend to post your rants. If you see technical issues, please do us a favor and report them here.
What we put out there today is nowhere near a “finished” product. We’ve said from the beginning that TBD will always be developing and changing as we get new ideas and more information – so consider this TBD 1.0.
I really want to take this opportunity to say I’ve been so lucky as a journalist and as a person to have been able to build this site with these amazing people. I’ve never been so challenged, felt so excited or learned so much in such a short time as I have here. I have had the time of my life putting together this big crazy idea – and I expect it to only get better as we actually get down to the business we all came here to do.
We’ve been getting a lot of press in the lead-up to launch and I expect to see more reviews in the coming days. I’m collecting them here. Let me know if I’ve missed any links.
