Foundation: Kevin Rose's Newsletter.

Foundationlogo Digg Founder Kevin Rose launched, this month, a private Newsletter called Foundation.
Last year Kevin announced that he was leaving Diggnation, a weekly tech/web culture show based on the top digg.com social bookmarking news stories, to start his own show called “fforward”. His idea evolved into something else called Foundation (http://foundat.io/n), a private paid newsletter for the cost of $3.99/month.

The first Fondation video, release on January 3rd 2011, is an interview of Jack Dorsey the inventor of Twitter and co-founder of Square (a cool new way to charge a credit card using an iPhone).

If you did not knew that Twitter was almost named Jitter or Twitch you will after watching this video.
You will find after the video, Foundation’s first newsletter I got with all the details and the FAQ.

Hello all, Kevin Rose here.

Thanks again for subscribing to my fforward newsletter.
I'm writing you because I have some exciting news! I'm launching a new podcast and private newsletter today, which is now called "Foundation" (formerly "fforward").

What is Foundation:

Foundation is a monthly private email newsletter that features video interviews, product reviews, rants, and early access to pre-launched websites.  

 

How do I get access:

Foundation videos will always be free of charge and available on Revision3.com, iTunes, my blog (kevinrose.com), and tweeted out (@kevinrose / @foundat_ion).
That said, for newsletter subscribers ($3.99 per month), you'll receive the videos without ads a week before everyone else, along w/product reviews, rants, rumors, and early access to pre-launched websites.
To signup for the private newsletter visit:

How can I watch the first episode?

Right here:

Why are you charging?

I'm spending money on equipment, travel, and editing. As you'll see in episode 1, quality is very important to me, and I want to take the extra time and deliver the best experience possible, without ads in the video.  That said, if you can't afford the subscription, the videos will be released to the general public one week after it's released to newsletter subscribers.

What else do I get as a newsletter subscriber?

I plan on releasing rants, product reviews, rumors, and occasionally sending out early access to pre-launched websites.

What happens to ffoward newsletter that I'm subscribed to?

I'm deleted this list, this is the last email you'll receive from your fforward subscription.
To sign-up for the Foundation newsletter visit:

Thanks all, and I hope you enjoy the newsletter/videos!
Kevin
