Joshua Topolsky to Do That Thing He Does Again, Again

Sara Fischer, Axios:

Retail trading platform Robinhood is launching an independent media brand called Sherwood that will be led by veteran tech editor and media entrepreneur Joshua Topolsky.


“It’s a significant, long-term investment,” Topolsky said when asked about Robinhood’s commitment to the new outlet. There are “a lot of resources being dedicated to this project.”

I am guessing a broadly 1980s aesthetic from Code and Theory with lots of colour, a launch portraying it as “weird” and “trying something new”, some kind of storytelling gimmick, and a lifespan frustratingly short for the talented staff he will hire. Just a spitball.
