A few of you might have noticed the Corante Media Hub logo that showed up in our right column about a week ago.
It signifies our participation in Corante clan where our blog posts will be aggregated along with the feeds of some of our favorite media writers: Robin Good, Robert Andrews, Tim Porter, Jonathan Dube, Vin Crosbie, Terry Heaton and Mark Hamilton.
The editor of the Media Hub is none other than Hylton Jolliffe, Corante's CEO, Editor and Founder. Hylton explains:
"The Corante Media Hub is your starting point for keeping abreast of the best writing and thinking on the media industry, the practice of journalism, the rise of social media, and the radical forces reshaping the media landscape. With the launch and development of the Corante Network, Corante has partnered with scores of the blogosphere's most respected thinkers and writers in specific categories to bring you cutting edge coverage and commentary that will help you stay ahead of the curve, gain valuable insights, and save time. In addition, you'll find various tools and features on the Hub designed to help you find related and relevant editorial."
To celebrate, we decided to finally redesign the Hypergene MediaBlog.
The MediaBlog was launched on 1 October 2002 about two months before anyone had heard of Technorati. And until this week, we hadn't really touched the design.
As professional designers, we've had to habor our guilt not unlike a plumber with perpetually leaky pipes. But with a few midnight night readings of Bulletproof Web Design and a prescription of IE/Win hacks from our collegue Blake Scarbrough, we think the worst is over.
