One year of intense work was put into development of the revolutionary Online-Platform Newsgrape, that a young team under the students Felix Häusler (21) and Leo Fasbender (22) from Vienna, Austria, have now presented to the public on Kickstarter.co

Whether reports or essays, recipes, poems or aphorisms - Newsgrape is a place for everything. It has never been this easy to share written contributions with other people. Or to put it this way: Newsgrape allows writers to reach more readers than ever before, and readers, to always find the right reading material: a variety of charts, categories, genres, tags and rubrics allows readers to find the right reading material for every mood.
It can accommodate multilingual users , connect relevant content, help you to found your own magazine and write/publish collaboratively with your friends. Additionally, it allows you to generate profits from your contributions (up to 60% of the income is returned) and gives you the opportunity to be discovered as a writing talent. It also provides a useful comment board and functions as a partner for established online media.
A smart navigation system allows a maximum of user-friendliness: The "E-Go-Site" solely displays subscribed authors and magazines. The Online-RSS-Reader makes it your first, diversified News-Portal.
Newsgrape operates on a specially designed engine, based on a modern version of "Django", a variation on the famous "Python” engine that is so far already consisting of approximately 11.000 lines of code. The development of Newsgrape Alpha 1.0 has so far accumulated 5.440 hours of work, from over thirty people from all over the world (from Germany or Singapur to Serbia, Croatia or Hungary)
With $12k Newsgrape Pre-Beta 1.0 can launch this winter. In case 50k are reached, server capacities could be increased drastically so the traffic in the States will be much quicker. In case over 120k are pledged, the team will immediately begin with the development of the irreducible complex Advertising and Affiliate System so users can generate profit much quicker.
