On Wednesday the Polish online community welcomed its first Huffington Post-inspired news website, content-aggregator and blog site, naTemat.pl.
Firm NextWeb Media is behind the idea, with Polish journalist Tomasz Lis at the helm of the editorial team.
“The main inspiration for the project team was the American Huffington Post. The success of Arianna Huffington inspired us to create something similar in our country. Our plan is to engage hundreds of bloggers to initiate debates on the Poles' most current problems,” Mr Lis said in a statement.
NaTemat.pl will feature blogs from over 150 bloggers, including prominent figures from the world of politics, the media, culture, sports and fashion.
Among them are former Polish President Aleksander Kwaśniewski, former PM Leszek Miller, leader of the Palikot's Movement party Janusz Palikot, film director Agnieszka Holland, skier Justyna Kowalczyk, fashion designer Gosia Baczyńska, heavy-metal singer Nergal and talk-show host Kuba Wojewódzki.
