Long Play logoLong Play is the first finnish “slow journalism” site. It was opened last week and the premiere story is on corruption in football (mainly finnish football, but odd characters abound nonetheless).

Their earnings model is per-story, but there’s no proper webstore or reader application yet. Right now Elisa Kirja sounds like the best payment option (fortunately there is a dedicated app in the works).

I’ve been a fan of the laconic and plain Economist for ages, but haven’t a) subscribed to the magazine or b) actively followed their website.

Today they started a ten day-long debate on whether it’s worthwhile to return to the Moon.

Definitely worth reading.

But I’ll stick to purchasing the odd issue here and there as opposed to subscribing – the information overload in the weekly 80+ pages causes cherrypicking.
