Progress at MATTER

Hi All,

It’s been a hectic few weeks here at MATTER. We received a draft of one of our first stories and our web design team has been churning out prototypes. We’ve also been nailing down tedious but critical details of the system we’ll use to collect payments on the site. Check out the blog posts on our candidate logo designs and the results of our survey of supporters for more.

We’re now moving toward the really critical part of the process: our launch. We have two candidates for our first story, both of which involve some difficult investigative reporting that is yet to be completed. We can't set a launch date until that's finalised, so please bear with us just a little longer. We’d hoped to be up and running by late summer, but when you read the pieces I hope you’ll understand why we waited to get them right. We think that both will be superb examples of the kind of in-depth reporting that MATTER is being built to publish.

We’ll update you as soon as we know more. In the meantime, check for updates at our Twitter feed, on our blog, or email us direct at

Thanks again for your support,

Jim, MATTER co-founder

      I'm sure it'll be worth the wait. Good luck with your investigations and reporting!
