Love this: When the founders of digital publishing startup +The Atavist met with venture capitalists, they were asked to ditch journalism for strict content creation. Their collective response? "See ya."

The Atavist publishes bestselling nonfiction stories, longer than magazine articles but shorter than books
Introduction
The Atavist is a boutique publishing house producing original nonfiction stories for digital, mobile reading devices. We created a new genre of nonfiction, a digital form that lies in the space between long narrative magazine articles and traditional books and e-books. Publishing them digitally and offering them individually—a bit like music singles in iTunes—allows us to present stories longer and in more depth than typical magazines, less expensive and more dynamic than traditional books.
