reported.ly will have no web presence

     Monday, January 5, 2015 at 12:22 PM

reported.ly is part First Look, the news company startup by Pierre
Omidyar. They announced today that they will not exist on the web, only
on sites like Twitter, Facebook, Medium, Reddit. No feed, no http
address.#

It's worth putting down this marker, to see how this turns out. Will
they add a feed? Will they eventually want their own web presence?#

Where will the revenue will come from if the readers find them primarily
(for now only) on sites that don't provide a way for users to sell ads.

Today the domain reported.ly redirects to a Medium page. A Google search
turns up almost nothing related to the effort because the word
"reportedly" means something, reportedly.
