The Daily Dot Launches a Tech Section for the Rest of Us

Internet's paper of record to focus on approachable technology coverage (March 05, 2014)

AUSTIN, Texas, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --The Daily Dot, the most comprehensive source of Internet-community news and cultural commentary, launches a new section today focused on tech coverage for the rest of us: original, insightful, and sourced reporting that analyzes our complicated relationship with modern technology.

The Tech section is the latest in a series of evolutions for Daily Dot Media, following the January acquisition of U.K. publication The Kernel and the recent launch of an esports vertical, devoted to the world of competitive gaming.

"We're not looking to compete with TechCrunch or Gizmodo with product reviews or iPhone news," said Managing Editor Austin Powell. "Instead, we're focusing on something that's a little more personal, finding the more meaningful stories behind the apps and social networks that connect and empower us."


The Daily Dot serves as the paper of record for the Internet. The new section will approach Tech from the same angle, covering singular events and notable leaders in the tech industry, privacy concerns, and must-have apps through investigative reporting, engaging features, and more instructional guides that will connect readers with the tech that matters most.

Molly McHugh, Tech Editor for The Daily Dot: "There's nothing elitist or exclusionary about our tech coverage. It's an approachable, people-oriented way to talk about technology. Our stories will largely focus on the crossover between what happens online and what happens IRL, and the pieces of technology that facilitate this. We're going to answer questions about how and why people are using various products and services. And we think there are no dumb questions about technologyand even if there are, our coverage will still answer them."
