Competing against former employers

Here's a story that should gladden the heart of any journalist who ever thought he was smarter than his bosses. The former editor and managing editor of The Chronicle of Higher Education have gone into competition against their ex bosses. The journalists have launched, a free, Web-only publication to rival the paid-subscription Chronicle, a specialized publication serving academics and university administrators. In addition to being less "stodgy" than the Chronicle, insidehighered promises to reach a broader audience by targeting grad students and smaller institutions.
