There are several types of technology blogs and websites on the internet. There are the multi-million dollar sites sponsored by mainstream media that try to appeal to the lowest common denominator and bores the rest of the world. There are blogs run by people who have no idea what they're talking about and who cut and paste blurbs from the mainstream media sites. There are blogs run by knowledgeable people who copy a blurb from a press release and put in a paragraph analysis. But none of them are, for lack of a better word, any good. How many blogs are there in your feed reader that you absolutely positively have to read? How many quality articles have you read in the last month? For me, the number is not that high.
As many Newsvine users know, Kyle Baxter and I have been working on a site to fill this gap. After hiring several writers, changing our name several times, and buying a domain, we've finally launched Dawning Valley at http://www.dawningvalley.com/. Together with Newsviners Kirk Lennon, Elliot Vos, and Ryan Joseph and independent blogger James Mowery, we are going to fill that gap of quality, original, relevant content on the internet.
We won't post fifty posts every day. Sure, that's what every other blog out there does. But we don't want to be like every other blog. We embrace quality over quantity. We won't write about every single breaking piece of news that comes out. That's what Newsvine, Digg, and Reddit are for. You won't see us in your feed reader every day. But when you do see us, you'll be assured that it will be something worth reading, whether it be a preview or review of a product, a how-to, or a piece of news analysis.
Today, we have two articles for you: iPhone: Beginning of a Mobile Age, and Apple's Future and The Web: 10 Years From Now. We will have new articles on Thursday and Friday as well.
