What was teased as fforward early last year, has now been launched as Foundation.

Those of us who subscribed last year received the following email for Mr. Rose:

Hello all, Kevin Rose here. Thanks again for subscribing to my fforward newsletter.. I’m writing you because I have some exciting news! I’m launching a new podcast and private newsletter today, which is now called “Foundation” (formerly “fforward”).

What is Foundation?

Foundation is a monthly private email newsletter that features video interviews, product reviews, rants, and early access to pre-launched websites.

How do I get access?

Foundation videos will always be free of charge and available on Revision3.com, iTunes, my blog (kevinrose.com), and tweeted out (@kevinrose / @foundat_ion). That said, for newsletter subscribers ($3.99 per month), you’ll receive the videos without ads a week before everyone else, along w/product reviews, rants, rumors, and early access to pre-launched websites. To signup for the private newsletter visit: http://foundat.io/n

How can I watch the first episode?

Right here:

Why are you charging?

I’m spending money on equipment, travel, and editing. As you’ll see in episode 1, quality is very important to me, and I want to take the extra time and deliver the best experience possible, without ads in the video. That said, if you can’t afford the subscription, the videos will be released to the general public one week after it’s released to newsletter subscribers.

Thanks all, and I hope you enjoy the newsletter/videos!

Kevin

First and foremost – congratulations to Kevin for this new venture. Gotta love someone with his clout and having access to so much leading edge technology information, being willing to share that with his followers for practically nothing – $4 per month quite manageable under anyone’s budget.

Judging from this first video with Jack, we’re in for a serious treat (oh yeah – I’ve already subscribed)
