    Hopeful news perhaps, something needed in the wake of The Honolulu Star Bulletin going weekly.

    John Temple, editor of the new Peer News online news service about to launch, has a blog thAT chronicleS progress in building staff, etc.

    Note that they have picked up Chad Blair from PBN, Treena Shapiro from the Advertiser, Katherine Nichols from the Star Bulletin, Michael Levine (asst news editor for The Garden Island), and some folks from the mainland - including Hawaii people returning to the islands.

    Question remains - how they gonna make money?

    So has anyone logged on to Civil Beat? (formerly Peer News). I may try it over the weekend when I get my computer out of the shop . . . not especially anxious to pay for "news" content, even at the reduced price of $4.99. They ought to offer it for free for a while.

    Indeed. And Ian also reported today on a list of Hanabua's backers, with more to follow on Case and Djou. Ian is a fantastic investigative reporter and his blog is a "must read" for me every morning.

    .

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    Other news websites offer their content free 24-7-365.

    Civil Beat is just using the weekend freebie as an enticement. Of course they are offering it when readership may be the highest during election weekend. I'm certainly not buying... I'll look of course, but not dishing out any cash.
    I'm still here. Are you?
