Former CNET and ZDTV producer and reporter Robert A. Grove, author and columnist Michael S. Malone and former Applied Materials vp Tom Hayes have formed a news Web site, Edgelings.com, which they hope will become the home page of record for global readers interested in all aspects of technology news. From their release:
- Edgelings.com is designed to fill the vacuum left by the collapse of high tech industry coverage in daily newspapers and mainstream magazine, and by the retreat of trade magazines from general readers to ever-more narrow niche audiences. In the process, Edgelings is also pioneering a new relationship with journalists that will give them a financial stake in the success of their stories measured by readership and traffic impact.
“Our goal,” says Tom Hayes, Edgelings publisher, “is to create a new place between the gadget geeks and the gossip mongers where anyone interested in technology can get a fast daily briefing on the important issues and trends of the day.”
