In many ways, the Internet has leveled the playing field in the digital media space. Where a few prominent outlets like the New York Times and Wall Street Journal once towered over all else, a complex ecosystem of online news sites, blogs and other upstarts now challenges their superiority. American University even offers a master’s degree in media entrepeneurship now. This year’s most promising new venture may be PandoDaily, a blog launched amid much fanfare this month. In its infancy, PandoDaily is already slated to become the site of record for tech startups. Sarah Lacy, a former TechCrunch reporter, developed the blog after raising an impressive $2.5 million. The name derives from a type of tree with an impressive root system used to continually shoot up new trees, mirroring the Silicon Valley startup environment.
