In different news, Tristan’s been chatting to the 11FS folk:
Media offensive at the moment
I find some segments of the media offensive a lot of the time.
Oh… you meant…
Cooler heads are (largely) prevailing at the Times. Get past the first few paragraphs and this is a balanced, interesting, read:

I was signed up until they printed the original story
Here’s a subscriber shared link to it, agree it’s a much more reasoned article this time
How many customers does Starling Bank have?
I think thats a very fair article , without doubt Monzo is an investment gamble
Pretty decent article for people who haven’t been following Monzo I’d say.
I bet all of the people outside of the forum must be wondering what the hell is going on
a bit of an olive branch from the reporter after reflection Id say
Sounds like there has been some further dialogue between Monzo and The Times behind the scenes (which is fair enough).
Looks like everyone sat down somewhere between Moorgate and London Bridge and sorted things out. Well balanced piece, and Hosking seems to now understand Monzo (and the other app based banks) better.
That’s a much better article from the Times.
Definitely a much better article. Actually factual.
Can someone explain that photo where Tom is on a bean bag but out on the street? Looks like a really bad photoshop
That’s a much better article. Fair, reasoned, honest and informative. No sensationalist crap, proper journalism.
Definitely a good article. Balanced, showing the risks, honest. A++.
Financial Times Alphaville - What crowdfunding is really about discusses Monzo supporters, supporting Monzo.
Thanks. I’ll skip it
Is avocado, shoreditch, pink or neon mentioned? And of course Tom’s age?
