Brill is Back!
posted: August 30, 2009
Steve Brill is back again, this time as journalism's savior, according to Newsweek.

JournalismOnline.com - here to save the day! Woo hoo!

Other brilliant Brill ideas:
IdentityPass - shut down June 23, 2009, without any notice to the company's 260,000 paid customers
Brill's Content - belly-up in 2001
ContentVille.com - crashed and burned 2001

The next big Brill idea might be exactly the right idea. But, you have to wonder if the savior left too many followers disappointed along the way to be the right prophet of profit.

I worked for him as an AD at Brill's Content. Let me put it this way.. he could claim to see a shade of red that no else could.

Hi Zimm - Thanks as always for opening my eyes to the cutting edge. I read the Newsweek interview, and at first glance it sounds like a great idea - an iTunes store for journalism. Do you have any further perspective? What might the down side of Brill's idea be, other than that he has a history of failed ventures?
