A couple of weeks ago we heard something about it and now it’s official: WeblogsInc is a new venture aiming to push weblog writers towards profitability. They want to leverage their knowledge of publishing and their salesmanship to help bring the necessary trafic to writers. 50/50 partnership. We’ll see.

[Update: Wired reports]

Since June 1st I’ve had a document online (behind ht access) detailing a very similar project in more depth than their front page. It was sent to a few people but for various reasons never made public. That was probably not the best move. Oups. I guess I’ll take out a few things that were aimed at specific people and make it public. In the mean time if anyone’s interested, email me, I’ll give access to some.
