Is This My Calling?

I just read a post from Battelle [I rarely actually read posts these days and this one caught my eye] regarding Matt McCallister's recent departure from IDG and his request to relaunch a company John Battelle founded [The Standard] relaunched during his tenure. So he's asking somebody, somewhere to make it happen since IDG isn't getting it

"I wish somebody would launch a media brand that covered the Internet business for people in the Internet business. I've bet my career on this industry, and it would be really nice if there was a brand that stood independently in the middle of it, reported on it with intelligence and depth and integrity, and helped facilitate dialog amongst us all."

McCallister also adds...
"I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who finds the Internet business fascinating. Somebody, please, figure this out and make it happen."

Yeah, um, that's pretty much my calling. This is just as inspiring as the VH1 Driven episode on GreenDay. No joke, this is a call to action, I'm all for it and all about it.

Thanks Matt, you made my day!
