Today marks the 30th day of Ulitzer's public beta. We had an amazing month
and perhaps one of the most widely discussed launches of a "new
media" site. Gartner recently asked, "Will Ulitzer dominate news content on
the Web eventually?" The answer is yes, and I'll explain why.
First, I'd like to share some of the 30-day stats with you. We had more than
140,000 visitors who read 197,000 pages of articles, blogs and news stories.
The syndicated page views (outside the Ulitzer domain) exceeded 1,369,983
page views. The legendary technology reporter Maureen O'Gara was the most
read Ulitzer author with 231,600 rolling page views, and we syndicated more
than 3,000 Ulitzer stories.

Cisco's January sales were down 20% from a year ago. Its customers are
holding off their purchasing decisions under the current economic climate.
The only growth potential the company has today is in the virtualization
market, which is expected to increase by more than 40% in 2009.
Cisco is not exactly a software company. Like Dell they need to come up with
a sustainable proposition for their customers. So far what we have seen from
Cisco is a virtual router. The word on the street is that next week they are
expected to announce their game plan, per... (more)
Since launching our revolutionary Ulitzer platform we have been the butt of a
smear campaign perpetrated by a small number of social media terrorists from
within Adobe's Flex user community.
Ulitzer, Inc. owns www.sys-con.com.
I cannot imagine a Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, Google, or Apple employee publicly
writing "SYS-CON should die!" under his or her corporate credentials, or
leaving reader feedback on a Gartner blog implying "SYS-CON are thieves"
next to his or her corporate credentials especially when the allegation is
false and carries legal consequences.
Naturally we document... (more)
I see Simon Hradecky, the site editor of The Aviation Herald
(www.avherald.com) reported this a few hours ago, about our JetBlue emergency
