Looking around our publishing neighbourhood, we see newspapers, magazines, and journalists doing some pretty cool things. There are artists-formerly-known-as traditional media, DIY aggregators, print pushers -- all trying new ideas or pivoting older ones. Like any good neighbour, we're nosy about how they're doing out there. We hear that they're building sites to address the challenges that have come along; finding new ways to make and deliver their content; and seeing benefits in revisiting old methods.

Come hear a few good nabes give us the word on what they're up to their side of the street:

Ben Peterson - Co-founder of Newsana (, a community-powered news site that brings meaningful context and smart conversation to the online news landscape.

Emily Keeler - Founder and editor of Little Brother Magazine (, a new bi-annual magazine that celebrates essays, photography and short fiction in a brilliant print package.

Craig Saila - Director of Digital Products at the Globe and Mail (, who revels in the challenges and victories of working with such a content-rich site.
