The post-TechCrunch cat is out of the bag with regards to Paul Carr, courtesy of his former workmate Alexia Tsotsis. Responding to her blog post (which he has also, very helpfully, added to via a funny Skype interview), the Las Vegas based entrepreneur (pictured) has confirmed that his top secret Not Safe For Work Corporation is a vanguard Internet publishing company.
Carr will be aiming his content exclusively at those using tablets and e-book readers. Here’s the skinny, courtesy of Tsotsis:
NSFW Corp’s first publication will be The New Gambit, which Carr describes as The Economist as written by The Daily Show writers–something like The Onion but for real news.
The New Gambit wiill launch in public beta at the end of next month Carr hopes, and will be available cross-platform–on the Kindle, iPad, Nook, etc. Carr wants to hit a regular publishing schedule by the early part of 2012, with the weekly subscription costing 99 cents per 50-page issue.
Carr ends his blog post by noting that although he would prefer all new hires to work out of Sin City, he might be willing to make an exception for “the funniest man in Belgium” or “the best damn publisher on the east coast.”
