Let’s all get together and welcome the latest member of the BWL family – AudioMonger.com. Edited by Blake Robinson of NOLA, AudioMonger is about music – the bands, the guitars, the lifestyle. AudioMonger isn’t about East Coast/West Coast, Hipster vs. Emo, it’s about good music and good writing.
NY Times – Creative, which was making portable MP3 players long before there was an iPod, has designated its latest player, the Zen Vision:M, as a powerful weapon against Apple’s juggernaut.
The 30-gigabyte Vision:M can play MP3’s and copy-protected music, display pictures and even play video on its 2.5-inch color screen. The $330 player comes in black, white, green or pink.
Got another mention in the Palm Beach Post. It’s a good gift guide.
If tech gadgets are in your holiday shopping plans, a good person to talk to is John Biggs, news editor at New York City-based Gizmodo.com.
With about 10 million page views in October, it is one of the Internet’s most popular gadget news and reviews sites.
“We cover the world of technology obsessively,” Biggs said, adding that the site’s four writers and two editors work from home and stay in touch with other via instant messaging.
Gizmodo produces about 30 stories per day.
“It reminds me of an old newsroom where we’re all yelling at each other, except it’s over IM.”

I’m an editor for Apress and I’m looking for a few good writers. I edit a line “after-hours” books – fun with Lego, gadgetry, etc. and I’m looking for folks who might get a kick out of writing books on the things they love rather then high-tech point and clickery. Drop me a line at jbiggs at apress dot com if you’re interested in starting a dialogue.
