Launched in January 2009 by Ernie Smith from Washington D.C., the site publishes about 30 news soundbites a day. ShortFormBlog is still a part-time project for Smith, who also works as a graphic designer at The Washington Post. He’s hoping to turn the site into a full-time business. And I think he’s onto something, certainly in terms of using a tool like Tumblr to change the way news is delivered and consumed.
Thanks for the write-up, Richard. Now, back to the news.
