Digest rethinks email newsletters

Viewport Industries, co-founded by Keir Whitaker and Elliot Jay Stocks, has announced Digest, a “weekly newsletter for the discerning web professional”. Bucking the trend towards blogs and social networks, Digest is to be an email newsletter, which will be sent out every Thursday. And rather than ranting about industry problems or exploring the minutiae of a specific slice of code, it instead aims to tell stories, based around the themes ‘Object of Desire’, ‘City Guide’, ‘Culture’ and ‘Spotlight On’.

We spoke to Whitaker (KW) about the project and why Viewport Industries is rethinking email newsletters.
