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.

New Media on Ulitzer
Last week we were accidentally copied in on an internal e-mail from a
software company with a market cap in excess of five billion dollars. As I
read through this long e-mail thread, which included references to our
company, I couldn't help but reflect on the past. I forwarded this e-mail to
their CEO and he acknowledged its receipt. History is repeating itself, I
realized, and I wanted to share my thoughts with our readers and with the CEO
of this software company.
