support for new matilda
The Australian independent online news and analysis site New Matilda is on it’s last day of its campaign to raise enough funds to stay afloat in 2011. While it’s fantastic that blogs like ours can run with no costs whatsoever, I think it’s also important to support local independent news sources to be well resourced and able pay for quality writing and analysis. New Matilda rely on this kind of funding so that they can publish content online for free without subscriptions. So, I thought I’d plug their campaign here. If you want to support independent media in Australia and to keep New Matilda online, please think about donating even a small amount. They are up to 75% of their target, and if they don’t reach that target, all donations will be returned. You can donate here via their fundbreak site.
