Mark you have connected the dots in a wonderful way. I really look forward to seeing how it all evolves for you. With any luck RTE will be watching what you do closely and will learn a few things. You are uniquely placed to make a difference. Best of luck.

I have shared it with the principals at the National Press Club, as we have spent two years working on multiple projects related to your speech topic & the First Amendment, freedom of the Press & the Future of Journalism. Every good wish for success with your new media venture. Tony Culley-Foster. HTTP://CFCOINTL.COM

Absolutely billiant - saw Mark in Cork recently and have seen a whole new side to news and current affairs subsequently. His new website will undoubtedly be a success !

Very interesting talk. The changes that are on the way will be fascinating to watch. Opening up the media will enhance democracy hugely. People will get to know and trust sources. I think the fears about bad sources will (largely) prove to be unfounded: The internet is a merciless critic.

News created by traditional journalists is constrained and monopolised by the medium they operate in. It looks like Mark is going to turn that on it's head by combining professional journalists with consumer mavens to create the news at a depth we can choose. news is about to get real. and about time.
