VICE News Beta Launches

Shane Smith at VICE:

We couldn’t be more excited to launch this site, and hope that you will help us make VICE News as good as we can possibly make it. We are in this together, and as they say in French, “L’Union Fait la Force,” or “Unity Makes Strength.” So let’s go out there together and change the world.

Now is our time. Let’s take it.

Say what you want about VICE (Brooklyn hipsters, blah blah blah), but I really think they’re doing something special. Their Ukraine/Russia coverage is absolutely stunning, and running rings around any other news organisation at the moment.

Here’s my little prediction: I expect VICE to change international news & current events reporting in the same way that The Verge changed tech coverage.

Reckoner had its humble beginnings way back in June of 2013.

Founded by James Croft, along with Peter Wells and Anthony Agius they created what would go on to become one of Australia’s most highly regarded and award winning independent tech blogs.

With its uniquely Australian voice Reckoner is committed to offering a “no-holds-barred” approach to its writing. Beholden to no one but its audience. Reckoner’s goal is to remain completely transparent and honour the trust it’s built with its faithful readership.

Support Reckoner!
