Matter is the online magazine published by Matter Studios, a multi-platform content studio owned by Twitter founder Evan Williams (Internet entrepreneur)

History and profile

Matter began life as an online publication specializing in long-form articles about science, technology, medicine and the environment. The founders, journalists Bobbie Johnson and Jim Giles, funded the project by raising $140,000 on Kickstarter in March 2012.[1] Following the successful campaign, an initial release of the online magazine was designed by Paul Lloyd and Jeremy Keith of Clearleft, and developed by Phil Gyford.[2] The success of the campaign generated discussion about new business models in journalism.[3]

In April 2013, Johnson and Giles announced that Matter had been acquired by Medium, a new publishing platform established by Twitter founder Ev Williams.[4] In June 2014, Matter was relaunched as a general interest publication under editor in chief Mark Lotto.[5]

In February 2016, Matter became the first digital publication to win a National Magazine Award in the prestigious category of reporting, for Joshua Hammer's story on the Ebola epidemic, "My Nurses Are Dead, and I Don’t Know If I’m Already Infected."[6][7]

In March 2016, Medium spun off Matter into an independent company, Matter Studios, owned by Medium founder Ev Williams. As part of its expansion into Matter Studios, under co-chief creative officers Mark Lotto and Hillary Frey, it produces digital journalism, podcasts, books, live events, documentaries and web series.[8]
