???Anyone on this yet. Got an invite to have a look.
Dont know if it will work but reckon its a good effort nonetheless.
The thing about running online services is that you need significant traffic levels for an advertising supported model. The danger for an online service in Ireland is that the market is very small so unless it is a highly monetisable (good advertising rates and revenue) niche or a broad coverage site, it will be difficult for it to survive more than a year or so before the backers have to fold it.I have to say I think the Journal was the Irish news/current affairs technology innovation of 2010 for me. Well done. Will it last? Not so sure if they have a business model any different from Daft. Hope it does.
