At least half of the new newsrooms will be “based in communities that are unserved or underserved, run by founders who have historically been shut out.”

Just as Bookshop is for local indie bookstores and The Green Hub is for ethical small businesses, The Tiny News Collective is for local indie media. It’s a trend that’s happening in all genres, and as a lover of Giant Killing, I welcome it!

地元のIndies書店向けにBookshopが、EthicalなSmall Business向けにThe Green Hubがあるように地元のIndies Media向けにThe Tiny News Collectiveが誕生。よりLocalでよりCollective。あらゆるジャンルで起こっている動き。Giant Killing好きな僕としては大歓迎な流れです

“There’s such a fun food scene in the city that we all just miss, and this is our ability to replicate that as much as possible until it’s safe to go back out again.”

The Boston Cocktail Club, launched by Boston.com, is an initiative to help locals feel connected to their community by targeting bars and restaurants that suffer from C19. It is similar to Bookshop and The Green Hub in that it is the local media with the scale, expertise and community that can get everyone involved.

Boston.comが始めたBoston Cocktail Club。C19で苦しむBarやRestaurantを対象とし地元の人々がCommunityとの繋がりを感じられる取り組み。規模、専門知識、Communityを持つ地元メディアだからこそ皆を巻き込めるという点はBookshopやThe Green Hubに共通する。
