Welcome to the newly refurbished DailyTekk (same great look, renovated content lineup). It is now January 2013 and DailyTekk is one year old! In that past, our guiding principle was this: curate cool and useful technology. Now we’ve got a new driving force: an insatiable curiosity for interesting technology. It’s not that we aren’t going to be curating the tech news, product and company launches, resources and tools as we have in the past, we will continue to do that in the future, but we’re refocusing on going a little bit deeper.
There are plenty of great tech sites that report on EVERY little tech development: TechCrunch, PandoDaily and VentureBeat among others for reporting on the world of tech startups, Mashable for social media news and lists, The Next Web, Ars Technica, Wired and All Things Digital for traditional style tech coverage. All that is just scratching the surface of the tech blogging/reporting world. There are review sites like Engadget and Gizmodo, there are scads of sites dedicated to Apple and Android products. All that and I haven’t even mentioned the other sites that make up the Say Media tech channel along with DailyTekk: ReadWrite, Techdirt, Android and Me, SplatF, Gear Patrol and now Techli. All that to say… where does DailyTekk fit in?
DailyTekk has been, and always will be (unless I ever sell it), a reflection of my own personal curiosities and interests about technology. I have roots as a designer and an IT Director, an entrepreneur and a nonprofit enthusiast. I love business, startups and big ideas. All of this experience has made me very opinionated and I will start expressing my views regularly via the Radar feature of the site. Essentially, Radar will function as an editorial column where I will give you my 2 cents worth… and will function as the main pillar of DailyTekk. I’ll try to post on Radar as often as possible. Sometimes that will be four times a day and sometimes it will be once a week–it will all depend on my schedule and mood.
The big addition to DailyTekk this year will be the addition of a bunch of great series featuring insights from very smart and talented people including journalists and freelance writers, executives and founders and experts and thought leaders from varying sectors. At the start of the year we’ve got 6 excellent new series for your delight ...
