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.

The short answer is yes. In our estimation, roughly 70% of today's PR firms
with their traditional public relations and communications business
structures will not survive the fast-approaching social media avalanche. The
remaining 30% that need to reinvent their position real fast in their newly
morphed industry will prosper, compared to where they were and what they were

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.
