The Concat - a new media perspective

It's time to welcome a new independent voice to the media scene! The Concatenate is an online news service that updates breaking stories throughout the day and - most importantly - critically analyses who's making news and why.

It's the brainchild of John Griffiths, a longtime Press Gallery denizen and a founder of The Riot Act who's taken his blogging and news gathering skills and put them together (Concatenated them!) to produce a smart and lively service for savvy media consumers.

And it's online now, making its debut with a sterling coverage of this week's Budget. A disclosure: I'm contributing to The Concat because I've seen John in action in his previous role as a news and information manager in the Press Gallery for information broker Capital Monitor - and been impressed by his astute understanding of the political process and the news business.

This country desperately needs fresh and independent sources of news. The Concat is a welcome arrival, and during May you can get a free subscription. Check it out here.
