Quartz, a digital, business-focused news site, owned by Atlantic Media Company has recently been launched.  Information Today’s Marydee Ojala reports that it combines site-authored articles along with links to articles published from outside sources, such as The New York Times, South China Morning Post, TechCrunch,  and The Atlantic.  Quartz is self-described as “digitally native” and was designed for mobile phones and tablets.  The content is built around “obsessions” that reflect the new global economy that has emerged as a result of the worldwide financial crisis.  The obsessions are: Energy Shocks, Mobile Web, China Slowdown, Ideas, Technology, Lifestyle, Low Interest Rates, Euro Crunch, The Next Crisis, Markets, US Elections, Modern States, Digital Money, Consumer Class, and Startups.
