Fifteen and a half years after founding Scoop Independent News - with 2.5 years at NewsRoom before - the human children in the Wendy Cooper and Alastair Thompson household, George McLellan, David James McLellan, and Gregor Thompson, have now all grown up and begun their adventuring. As a result an opportunity has arisen for us to also spread our wings. However before we do so we need to find some new guardians/mentors for the youngest and far and away most demanding member of the Cooper-Thompson household.
Over the past couple of years - on the path to setting Scoop free - we had tried quite hard to find some people to take control of the little blighter, but it seems Scoop was quite determined to find its own unique way in the world, and very nearly drove us all a little mad in the process. A typical teenager. That said Scoop is also very endearing. At times it can be remarkably useful, with a big heart, a loud voice, lots of friends, and a steadfast willingness to listen to everybody, all the time.
If you are interested in the future of Scoop then please keep an eye on "Operation Chrysalis" over summer and through January.
