Scripting News for 7/23/2008

TechJunk picking up steam 

Tech.NewsJunk.Com was born on the 4th of July, just like the United States of America. I chose a holiday so the expectations wouldn’t be too high, cause I knew at first it would be hard to find the kinds of stories I was looking for, news about products. Not interested in mergers or trends or personnel changes at tech companies. Just product news and reviews, that’s all.

Well, it’s starting to pick up. Maybe we’re learning where to look.

And the flow is up. It’s not even remotely in the ballpark of TechMeme, but a link from Tech might get you 250 page reads. That’s not bad. I’d take it.🙂

And now we have the JavaScript include, so if you want to include the latest links from TJ in your blog you can. Just add this bit of script into your page.

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://tech.newsjunk.com/js/recent5.js”&gt;

And if you know a good source of tech product news, please post a comment or send me an email. Thanks!

PS: A frequently asked question is does the news have to come from a famous blog or blogger — and the answer is an emphatic no way! I want to hear from real users, and when possible from the designer of the product. I care about what people think. Now, that said, it’s okay if you write for a big publication too. There’s just no bias against individual bloggers.
