The NEXT Paper du Jour?

I've been hearing about this for a little while, and now NEXT, a new daily newspaper by Pulitzer-winning journalist Dele Olojede has arrived. The Beta version of the website is online. NEXT also includes an SMS platform and an online TV station.

Their mission is not child's play either: they aim to be one of the best newspapers (and news websites) in the world in the next 12 months.

Well, I'll be on the lookout for the newspaper. It will be great if NEXT can make me excited to read the papers again.

Yes, was hearing lots about it too, but only saw the paper today (they delivered complimentory copies of their sunday edition to our office)
Haven't read it yet, but I love the look and layout! Looks like they want to do what USAToday did some years back when they stormed the newspaper published industry to change the rules ...

Well, I really will look out for it tomorrow. Pity no one is delivering complimentary copies to my office.
