The Quartz Way
Quartz, which got the cool qz.com, is a web-only business publication that has been running for about a year. It’s slightly similar to Slate.
Here is what Quartz says of itself:
Like Wired in the 1990s and The Economist in the 1840s, Quartz embodies the era in which it is being created. The financial crisis that recently engulfed much of the world wasn’t just a cyclical decline or a correction or even a bubble bursting. It was a breaking point. And its shockwaves exposed a fundamentally changed economic order with new leaders and ways of doing business.
I’ve been reading for about 8 months now and I must admit it’s delightfully written, always insightful and full of interesting stories.
I’m linking to an article written by Frédéric Filloux for The Monday Note. In it, Filloux explains why Quartz is different from other, more traditional publications. It’s well worth your time, for Quartz might be the way forward.
