Stone is a platform, currently in Beta, that captures research and workflow as video with highlights and commentary, at the desk or in the field. It adds depth and guaranteed video content to every story, allowing readers to follow the journey behind the journalism and creating a new branch of news media in the process.
Trust in quality journalism is deteriorating. Readers have no way of telling who did their homework and publishers have no way to make money except through more content.
By bringing readers closer to the coalface, creating greater intimacy with the work and familiarity with the process, ‘Stone’ functions as a quality signal, elevating thoroughly researched journalism above fast content and ‘fake news’, while engaging audiences with a behind-the-scenes look at journalism in action.
So join us. Write in Stone. Bring your audience with you on the journey and help restore trust in quality journalism!
