      A big announcement from Austonia

      Howdy, and happy holidays.

      I have some big news for you.

      Austonia is now part of 6AM City, a fast-growing network of hyper-local newsletters across the country.

      I’m proud to be telling you this, because 6AM City’s mission is very much like Austonia’s — a daily morning update on events, things-to-do and news, with an underlying mission of community building in the cities they serve.

      If you’re not already subscribed, 6AM City’s Austin newsletter is called ATXtoday. One of its city editors is Laura Figi, who you’ll remember for her previous great work on Austonia’s newsletter.

      I’ve been reading ATXtoday every day since it launched last year.

      Starting this week, you’ll receive ATXtoday every morning and I’m confident it will become part of your daily wake up routine. Be sure to add hello@theatxtoday.com to your contact list (how to do that here).

      Meantime let me thank you for your readership and support of Austonia, and convey my wishes for a great holiday season for you and those close to you.


      Thank you,

      Mark Dewey

      Austonia CEO
