I led an ambitious, nay, audacious bid with Rob WIlliams (The Independent) and Hywel William to establish Cartref.com, an innovative, new Welsh language digital news service. The concept involved establishing through training hyperlocal sites across Wales and original content created by a small team of journalists ‘in the field’ in order to generate original, meaningful news. It would have been very cool.
We knew it would have taken the funders guts to hand us the cash, and on this occasion we couldn’t quite persuade them to be brave. Hey ho. It’s all good experience.
