The parent company of my old employers have hired a design firm to create a concept of an ideal electronic magazine reader.
Question mark is because we proposed the talk, but it's up to the people to decide whether they'd like us to present...
The form we filled out had lots more info on it, but here's what the site says:
Turn Your Old Media Empire into a New Media Paradise
No, that's not me in the white suit and glasses.
I was interviewed this month by John Theisen, who runs the Enzian FilmSLAM, the FMF Indie Film Jam, and works for United Arts.
Here's a quick follow-up to last night's post.
Earlier today, Ryan Block asked:
Why should I be concerned? People arenâ€™t coming to Engadget to read about gadgets from 2006, or 1996, or 1896 â€” theyâ€™re coming to read about whatâ€™s going on today. Still, I love that PopSci, so this is gravy!
OR "How the battle became a collaboration".
To the Editors of Popular Science:
Actually, I'm not a quitter, so I'll say this: I've decided that instead of being "versus" each other, some of you Old Media types (can I say Traditional Media? thanks) actually care about your audience. Therefore, we are actually on the same side, you and me. That's why today, I changed the name of my blog to "Ryan Price and the Media". The arc of my story is changing, Act II is beginning (but please wait until the pops are two seconds apart).
Daylife has finally hit the web, and it is pretty cool so far.
That's right, kiddies. While following up on my last post here I saw a curious legend at the top of the page that said "Online Exlusives". Surely this must be some trick. OW makes their money from PRINT, what is an online exclusive to a print 'zine? Apparently they call it Bloggytown, and they have contributors like Jessica (no last name), Jeffrey Billman, Billy Manes and Bob Whitby to name a few.
It's called Liberatr::Art::meta(), and I chose that name because it builds on my brand, it attracts the geeks, but it contains the word Art. I am hoping I am covering all my bases here.
The story of starting a blogging business is not a new one: if you listen to as many podcasts and read as many blogs as I do (which is not a large amount), the formula stares you in the face. There have been covers stories in BusinessWeek that caught huge attention for blogs. Whereas a year ago I would not have been able to say so, my dad now knows what blogging is. So when I tell him I am interested in pursuing blogging for money, he didn't shoot down the idea right away.
