Editor/entrepreneur Tyler Brule has always come across as part maverick, part swim-against-the-stream editor, part arch-standard-bearer, and he holds to that view in a feature on MrMagazine.com.
Brule, the editor of Monocle, asserts there is an audience prepared to pay premiums for high-end material, and that reading on the Web is insufficient in attempting to please all audiences. The quality of ink on high-stock paper, for instance, has no technological peer --- at least, as yet.
Monocle is highly selective about its Web content for a reason: Brule doesn't believe it's an adequate reading medium, so the content is video-based. An earlier interview with him is here.
