What is nanopublishing?

A Guardian article, New biz on the blog, looks at the ways in which people (people being Nick, with whom I'm working) are using weblogs to create new "thin media" or "nanopublishing" sites. The key with these new ventures is cost: because it's low, revenue requirements remain in a reasonable realm (oy, alliteration overload, honestly that wasn't intentional). By which I mean, it's easy to get into the black and stay there. Also, if you read the article closely, there's a mention of what I'm up to these days (the bit about the Lafayette project). More on that as things get less vague in the coming months. [via Gawker]
