Hi! I'm Branden— the creator of the Goodnewspaper. If you're feeling overwhelmed by the division, bad news, and injustices happening all over the world but want to join in on being a part of movement of good, this is for you. We believe that by noticing and celebrating good news, we then are inspired to become good news ourselves. This hopeful mentality has been the ethos behind the stories I've shared on Instagram, Snapchat, my podcast, and my newsletter for years— and now we're going totally analog to inspire and empower people to make a difference in the world.
I kind of love that you're launching a physical paper in 2017. Will we see a resurgence of the newspaper in the coming decade, similar to vinyl's increase in popularity? 🤔
@rrhoover I think we're going to see a spike in physical media (newspapers, magazines, etc) in the coming years for two reasons. 1) As our lives become more digital, people want physical (and nostalgic) representations of the things and ideas they love. This is vinyl to a T. 2) Because there's unlimited real estate online, the need for quality has decreased as more publications, content creators, etc, go after quantity. In the world of news, that's why we see clickbait. It grabs our attention so we choose to spend our limited time engaging with that content— even if it's less quality. In physical media, there's a finite amount of content you can include, therefore the best content is what ends up getting printed. There's a level of quality assurance built right in. That's why (among other reasons) the New York Times saw a huge spike in subscriptions in the last year. We think it's both a funny and perfect time to be creating a physical newspaper (and joining the #CrookedMedia 😉)
Yess! This is something I've always wanted. Next please launch a tv news network that only focuses on the good in the world!
@downeastcakes Sounds like a great idea to us. :)
This is a product that has really come at the right time. The dominant voices in media (social or traditional) skew wildly in the direction of death, drama, and scandal. And the nature of the web today means you need to make a concerted effort just to moderate the bad news you see everyday to say nothing of introducing good news into your feeds. Consider me thoroughly onboard.
This is a nice idea. It reminds me a bit about the talks by legend Hans Rosling (RIP)
@jasondainter Thank you so much, Jason. I don't think I've ever heard of Hans! Looking forward to looking into him!
