This the first posting of the rebooted version of SiliconAlley.com.
SiliconAlley.com is now a blog and will expand to offer more.
When I started SiliconAlley.com in 1998, it seems so long ago, the
purpose of the site was to help those having responsibility or desires
to accomplish goals in the digital technology world.
In 1998 SiliconAlley.com’s mission:
SiliconAlley.com is dedicated to the growth and evolution of the new media industry. It is both a community and a resource. A center of excellence where industry best practices can be explored and where vision and innovation are shared to build new media businesses. It is a common ground for both people providing services and those in need of them.
Its still our mission except I will replace new media with digital.
Here is a link to the SiliconAlley.com of 1999 http://bit.ly/A6aXkw
It was find a problem, find a solution. Unlike other technology which
was incubated by the military and/or universities the Internet grew up
without standardized education, best practices or structured support.
You had a tremendous freedom to make a mistake and to fail. That is
one of the best things about American is that you can fail and then
So in that spirit SiliconAlley.com is rebooted. We strive to become an online community and trusted resource.
I live my life episodically. I find those who do the same thing year
in year out are processes of the machine. I like the randomness, the
excitement, and the challenge of creating and recreating myself and my
work product. If I wake up I have the responsibility of making the
best of the day and, mostly, I do.
For now I will be blogging, Whats is on my mind. What is in the news.
Shortly, SiliconAlley will expand.
Thank you Sander.
