Happy Birthday, DCS Media and a re-introduction
DCS Media has turned 2 today.
Happy Birthday, DCS Media! We just turned 2!
I want to thank everyone for a fantastic 2007 and I definitely look forward to an even more prosperous 2008.
I remember when I first started DCS Media back in 2006 that I couldn't sleep the night before launch. I was so excited to kick off this site.
To this day, I still have that same feeling with DCS Media as I did before. It was a passion of mine to always learn about the latest and newest technology and to provide quality reviews of software and services to small businesses and startups through the eyes of a professional computer technician/architect/programmer/technologist.
The primary goal of DCS Media in 2006 was to provide a site to my clients for viewing new technology available to help them with their startup or small business goals. This worked in conjunction with my love of technology and programming.
So a morphing began.
A combining of the two would be ideal for the startup/small business owner to know what type of technologies and ideas would be required for their business to succeed.
There is a term for a company like mine.
That term is called a Micro-ISV.
A Micro-ISV is a 1 or 2 person company that provides software and/or services to larger companies and it seems this term is becoming more and more well-known in the technology industry.
As DCS Media has grown over the past two years, I seem to be moving more towards a Micro-ISV profile. The site may change a little over the next year, but the categories will stay the same.
The primary categories that DCS Media focuses on are:
- General News (WebWorthy)
- Web 2.0 technologies
- Small Business news
- General Technology
- Designer and Developer techniques
With the addition of tags over this last year to work in harmony with the categories, the site has been going strong ever since.
For the startups and small businesses reading this, go for it! Make 2008 your year to shine. We hope that DCS Media will be a part of that.
For the existing (veteran) Micro-ISV's out there, I will be trying to make DCS Media more of a destination instead of a conduit by providing some new features on the site that will help you complete your projects on time, provide you with a better understanding of your clients, and provide the tools and technology to help you in making your business more profitable and maintainable.
In the next week, I'll be introducing new sections on DCS Media:
- Five-Fix Award - A Firefox award that is given to the authors of Firefox extensions that receive a 5 out of 5 rating from the Fireday reviews.
- Fireday Listings - Complete listing of all Fireday reviews in hReview format.
- Online Tools for the Micro-ISV - An ongoing compilation of online tools for Micro-ISVs.
- ...and more throughout the year.
As you can see, 2008 is going to be quite a year for DCS Media and I want to make sure my audience is part of that success by further expanding the site with new toolsets and techniques to further your business success.
Happy New Year everyone, and here's to a great 2008!
