An interesting project that seeks to help journalists and editors connect with each other has just launched in Canada.
MediaCooler.com is the brainchild of my friend, Alison Yesilcimen. I’ve been following the development of the service since September last year. I’ve had long conversations with Alison about it, providing feedback and trying out the alpha site.
MediaCooler aims to be a marketplace for media. In an e-mail, Alison said that she “always felt strongly there had to be a better way for professionals to market their work”.
The problem she is trying to solve is helping freelancers sell and syndicate their work, while streamlining the invoice and collection process.
After following the development of the project, it is great to see it come to fruition. I wish Alison and her team all the best with this endeavour.
