The Birth of Nut Graph (another highbrow news blog?)


A group of inspired journalists and business-minded people will launch The Nut Graph, Malaysia's newest (online) news portal, on 15 August 2008 (incidentally TODAY!). Good luck to them.

I have asked about joining them (although not sure what I am joining exactly, but the idea sounds wacky), obviously as an unproven sisuahlai writer, true to form. They haven't replied with a rejection, so as far as this dreamy application is concerned, it is still alive. :)

Nut graph has clearly stated that it won't be focusing on breaking news (read this write-up: The Nut Graph to explain it all) as it pointed out that Malaysiakini and MalaysianInsider have cornered the breaking news market, so no need to replicate. It will offer a different reporting style to readers. cough* I guess this has got nothing to do with budget constraints.

As Nut Graph isn't live yet at time of writing, I suspect it will offer plentiful of aerial views on socio-political subject matter - little to none first-hand reporting, but very heavy on afterthoughts. This description reminds me of an over-opinionated aunty showing off her arm-chair analysis about absolutely anything.

If that is the case, then it is not too too dissimilar to reading socio-political blogs that are so abundant in our local blogosphere, e.g. Malaysia Today.

One of the Nut Graph founders said,"There’s a lot of news reporting, that’s for sure, but not enough done to connect the dots."

"We believe it’s not enough to just report if we want to add value to our readers’ experience of the news."

I am eager to find out first-hand as I have no idea what she is trying to say.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
