Spreading the good news

Issue Media Group, publisher of Model D and Metromode, is expanding into Washtenaw with a new online weekly called Concentrate. Like its Detroit cousins, Concentrate will highlight development and job growth as an antidote to traditional media that focus solely on "unemployment, fire, murder and crime."

I like to poke fun at the unerringly upbeat tone of these publications, but I truly appreciate what they're doing. Model D is a weekly reminder that Detroit is not dead. Indeed, in many respects, it's on the upswing.
