Well here we are finally! The same guys behind The Coffee Desk of Internet infamy are back again with our new project: Silicon News!
It brings me great pleasure to debut the new blog. Since the Desk’s sale in 2010, the Internet has been changing rapidly and we all have stuff to say about it that you’ll want to read. Mark’s gotten older (and dirtier), Stephen “Van Wilder” has graduated with his CompSci degree, Chris is…well…Chris, and all the other authors’ details, old and new, are listed on the Authors page above as well as at the end of their posts.
For those of you following our Twitter account (which surprisingly did not transfer in the sale of the Desk), several failed attempts have been made at this project with collaborators: first the Tech Underground was slated to be our name, with Peter spearheading that project, but when that fell through another Desk-loving third party funded 8 Layer News…only for that to fall apart as well.
So I finally decided to just take the reigns myself like old times and get this baby up and running – with lovely CSS 3D graphics on the News page (for those of you who are Webkit-enabled), our Very Own URL-shortener http://si-ne.ws/ site, and talks of forming an affiliate Blogroll program here to link with other friend blogs that cover Consumer Electronics/Home Automation news, fashion/clothesmaking, a musician and a model’s philanthropic blog as well – all in the works down the pipeline!
So we have some very exciting things happening here at SiN (catchy, no?) and we invite all readers, old and new, to subscribe and/or follow us for fun and informational purposes. The Desk is back and better than ever
Anthony is the Silicon News editor-in-chief. Many dedicated readers know him from his prior blog The Coffee Desk before its sale in early 2010, which was featured in everything from Yahoo! News, Slashdot.org, and countless other news agencies pulling in millions of unique visitors a month. He has ample experience with software, hardware, and networking, having been employed by numerous companies ranging from U.S. government agencies, research and development firms and Google.
