Welcome to the brand-new NewTeeVee!
Three months ago we started this project with little more than an orange-tinged GigaOM design and an imperative to create ‘the Variety of online video.’ We had high hopes but also quite a bit of doubt about whether we could attract a community of readers. Though we loved every minute of it, it took us a little time to get comfortable in our own skin.
Today, we launch a new skin for the site, hoping to bring a little more spark to our page. Using your feedback, our wildest dreams, and the formidable skills of designer Nicolò Volpato (who previously impressed us with his stylish take on Om’s personal blog), we tried to reflect the visual nature of the topics we cover. RSS readers, we hope you’ll click through for this one.
We were also fortunate to have the able assistance of Spencer Miles and Mark Hall of Remixation and vod:pod, who helped us with the core concept of bringing video to the forefront of the site.
Last but not least, we welcome two new contributors: film critic Karina Longworth, who will be writing a weekly review of an online video show, clip, or movie, and Craig Rubens, who will be helping out with news items and occasionally lending us his film making/video-blogging chops. Look for their first posts next week.
