Today, The New York Times launched a startup incubator. Many are asking why they would do this. They have a pretty good answer right on their site:
It is simple: The New York Times, and media in general, are in the midst of unprecedented change. Our core purpose remains to enhance society by creating, collecting and distributing high-quality news and information. We want to push ourselves and push others to find the best ways to do so, and we believe that timeSpace can be a part of that process.
Like the Times, we are looking for the best ideas. The ideas that will grow the Kingdom of God.
