When internet came, newspapers were among the first one's with an presence online. But since then things have been pretty much the same. But..
*Websites full of ads
*LOT of distraction
*Unfriendly reading interface
Social readers(Flipboard, Pulse, Zine etc) have added a personalizing twist to it. But..
*Their set-up is messy and time consuming
*Their feeds are inaccurate with stories you don't care about
*You can never "stumble" into a story or topic in another area of interest
So let's take bring the real newspaper online with a beautiful overview and a pleasant and inviting reading interface. Let's make it possible to jump in and out of a story as easy as in a newspaper.
