  1. This opens up all kinds of possibilities for writers, both expats and Thai, to liven up the face of local story reporting, and I hope the many talented farangs in Thailand get a chance to publish their stories. I find that blogs and forums such as Thai Visa often have better insight into what's the pulse of Thailand than the mainstream publications, so hopefully XPress will get the message and open their paper to local talent. And I hope their website is very, very interactive to allow everyone to have a voice, something Thailand really needs right now.

  2. I have not seen a copy but am looking forward to next week. I'm not aware they've employed any additional staff for this project so it will be interesting to see how much content will be lifted from elsewhere – such as agency copy and the like.
    I can't see they will want to throw money at this (in terms of 'farang' salaries) until they are sure it will work. And that's the big question. Do Thai people – their self-confessed target for this new publication – want their news in English? My own experience that, given the choice, Thai people will read a Thai publication.

    It should be interesting to see what happens. Anything new in the Thai publishing world is a gamble in one form or another.

  3. The first issue yesterday was quite impressive – as you say, an impressive quantity of content. I think there will be a Thai audience for it, considering the 80 per cent Thai readership of BK in Bangkok. I wonder how popular The Nation will be, though, now that it has drastically changed itself into a business paper.
