New Media on Ulitzer
It is often said that becoming an entrepreneur is the modern-day equivalent
of choosing to be a pioneer on the old frontier. Only people with certain

Will Ulitzer and SocialYell Dominate News Content on The Web (Eventually)? is
the blog title of Gartner's Anthony Bradley.
In his blog entry, Bradley writes: "Hype around Ulitzer.com (the
social-journalism news magazine site) is climbing. At one point they were
offering authors 200% of their Google AdSense revenue... I am convinced that
the only way to change the world is through collectively determining how we
spend our money and our votes. Will Ulitzer be this vehicle?"
Ulitzer content is grouped in 25 distinct subjects from "Aerospace and
Defense" to "Travel and Hospitality."... (more)

Web 2.0 and Social Networking - what do those two technologies have in
common? When looking at them independently, and from a purely technical point
of view, you might think they don't have a lot in common. However, merge the
concepts of two of the hottest technical advances to come around in a while
and you have the power to change the world. Not all at once, as change
happens over time, but they do provide a framework and the opportunities for
major change, which is a first step and much of what we discuss here.
My hope is that you can use this excerpt as a reference that provid... (more)
