And here's the big idea. I want to do a technology blog, and not just technology, but cutting edge, what's coming down the pipe stuff. That itself, not so exciting. The target audience however, is your mother. I want to have a group of writers working to take the most esoteric of technologies, and explain to average joes exactly what it is, and why it should be important to them, and what it'll mean. DRM, viruses, identity theft, pervasive wireless networking, weable computing- whatever. The key is- it has to be something that actually matters to someone who's only interested in browsing eBay, and explained so that they can understand it, without spoon feeding them the content.
So, in preparation for an official launch sometime in the near future, I'm looking for two, maybe three writers to help contribute to the site. The call for writers is here and the "About Geekmatters" is here.
And yeah, can you believe that geekmatters.com was just lying around unclaimed? My first choice for the domain and I got it.
