When you’re used to working with a small team of journalists dedicated to covering technology, it’s strange to have thousands of people line up overnight to write for you.
That’s what happened to DigitalJournal.com when it launched its new user-driven news site in the fall of 2006. The site devoted itself to posting breaking news, and paying every citizen journalist and blogger who wanted to participate. The reaction surprised even us.
Within the first three months, the site had more than 18,000 stories posted, from live, breaking coverage of the Apple iPhone announcement to the leak of the uncensored video of Saddam Hussein’s hanging (earning more than 9,000 views almost right away). DigitalJournal.com has become home to news junkies who want to know what is happening now.
As much as the magazine offers intriguing features, our digital counterpart delivers what we see as the next frontier in journalism: user-powered stories and videos. The Internet has been so tightly woven into our daily culture that we recognized the need to become a trailblazer in a new media category. Basically, DigitalJournal.com is your portal into the future of mass media.
And the future is always on our mind, because the new issue of Digital Journal magazine looks at some of the trends, gadgets, companies and people that are earning the hottest Internet buzz.
"Our Faves" theme profiles the most talked-about ideas and personalities, including an exposé of one of Hollywood’s most renowned photographers, Alan Levenson, and an analysis of Nintendo’s incredible comeback with Wii. This issue is dedicated to highlighting up-and-comers and giving you a glimpse of the tech world as you’ve never seen it.
And as always, we’ve got our picks for Essential Digital Gear and luxurious goodies for stylish gadget lovers. We examine a contentious international study that suggests Apple should stop making Macs, and we bring you our infamous Lemon Award for the gaming console that ain’t worth it, the Sony PlayStation 3.
With a mandate to inform as much as to entertain, we’re striving to be your main resource for all things tech. Welcome to DigitalJournal.com, and come join us online to become part of the team.
