"Rue for its connotations of chance encounters, neighbourhood life, and pavement cafes, and "89" in reference to the French Revolution, and the invention of the world wide web..." Launched in May 2007 by a group of journalists from the left-wing daily Libération, Rue89 presents a mixture of professional and participatory journalism. Since then, it has built a reputation for exclusive news stories and innovative articles on social and cultural issues. It is now the 10th most frequented French general news site.
