Tonight is the launch of the Toronto Standard, a "daily digital briefing", based in Toronto but with a global outlook. Its flag is a revival of a shortlived publication that came out from1848 to 1850.
The editorial director of the venture (what do we call it? paper? magazine? website? blog?) is Christopher Frey who told Masthead:
“The Standard will primarily be a website0. “It will also be tablet-ready, smartphone-ready, and tailored dynamically to a wide selection of platforms.”Frey is a two-time gold medal winner at the National Magazine Awards and a contributor to The Walrus. He was a co-founder and editor of Outpost magazine.
