One Damn Thing After Another

Tyee at 100

A hundred days in and BC's lightly left online mag, Tyee, is pulling a quarter million page views a month. David Beers and company realized that the time was right for a non-Asper, non-corporate, bit of media and off they went. While some of the stories are pretty predicatably left wing, most are simply a take on the world which has no space in the mainstream media in the province. Interesting to compare and contrast to the utterly predicatble and largely unreadable Rabble.ca.

One of the best features of Tyee is a pretty much unrestricted comments policy. This means that when a writer lets his or her ideology get too far in front of the story they risk a public fisking right at the bottom of their piece. Instantly. Go read it and sign up for a subscription.
