Here was one of the most successful digital entrepreneurs, venturing into the local news field, where print-focused businesses were mostly failing dismally. Omidyar was the founder of eBay. When I explained the direct sales aspect of my Complete Community Connection business model, I cited eBay as an example of the businesses that pioneered direct digital sales, while the newspaper business was stuck in its advertising model. I thought Omidyar had as good a chance to figure out the business model for local news as anyone.
Share via Email Bristol is the first city west of London that can truly be said to be independent of the capital. It is a place with its own rich, varied culture and a distinctive natural as well as built environment. It is a city made up of villages rather than a metropolis, and the medieval centre, characterised by its tight streets and fine churches, remains at its heart.
Above all, Bristol is a merchant city, built around its port, which has had to adapt to changing circumstances and find new purpose. That new purpose lies in a mix of service and creative industries that replace the dwindling manufacturing base of tobacco, chocolate, packaging and aerospace.
Bristol of the 21st century is a predominately white-collar place and its new architecture is bound to reflect this. Like many British cities, Bristol has seen major changes in its skyline.
Once dominated by the spires and towers of its churches and public monuments, it is now compromised by the bland office blocks and residential towers that sprung up in the Sixties and Seventies. I live for the day that this damage to its character is repaired and a policy is adopted that defines the criteria for the appropriate siting of high buildings, which should only be permitted in the most exceptional circumstances with the most exceptional architecture.
These will be the new landmarks to be judged alongside those of earlier centuries. We may look up to the sky, but the vitality and form of the city will be defined more by what happens on the ground. The priorities are the arrival and city centre experiences, the reinforcement of distinct neighbourhoods, and the connections that make the city work.
His failure to convince the city fathers that he should bring the trains right into the heart of the docks has left a mile between rail and ship, and has become the guiding principle for the development of all that lies between.
This pedestrian-friendly route will take us past the glorious St Mary Redcliffe, which will be enormously enhanced by the replacement of the Fifties dual carriageway and roundabout with a mixed-use development that gives it a worthy setting. From here it is necessary to make a leap over the harbour to Spike Island, so giving a much-needed pedestrian connection to south Bristol.
In parallel, the water ferry connection between Temple Meads and the city is to be reinforced, with a ferry terminal directly accessible from the station. This is to be part of a vibrant mixed-use development incorporating the great concrete hulk of the old postal sorting office at the back of the station.
This, along with the planned development of Temple Quay North, will do much to compensate for the dreary monoculture of the Temple Quay office park which represents a massive lost opportunity.
Bristol has every opportunity to learn from its post-war mistakes and build on its success.
Gateways into the city, such as via the M32, must be glorified by great architecture following the removal of the dire Tollgate House and the development of Broadmead. Bristol of the future will be a great city to live, work and play in. It will be a sustainable city that anchors its neighbourhoods around its schools, libraries, high streets, cultural and sporting facilities, workplaces and parks.Transcript of Journalism: What has actually changed?
