Thursday Night Roundup: Edition 6 - launching November 1st

TechMarkia official launch November 1, 2010.

Welcome to TechMarkia.   We are planning on our official launch on November 1, 2010.   Until then, we are posting test articles and refining our blog.   What we are creating is a new online news publication that will cover the hottest Internet startups.  Our site will be different than TechCrunch and Mashable because we are going to cover the people who make the Internet progress from a human perspective.   In full disclosure to our readers, By way of background, we are a team of successful Internet entrepreneurs in Mountain View who created the website ( Trademarkia is a search engine for trademarks that is refreshed daily with the latest trademarks of the hottest Internet companies. In our first year after launching Trademarkia in September 2009, more than 3000 news publications and websites have linked to us based on information of upcoming product changes gleaned from recent trademark filings of companies such as Google, Twitter, Apple, Facebook, and others published first on Trademarkia. We also now attract millions of page views each month and tens of thousands of readers each day. In addition, we have also become profitable with no venture funding through a unique revenue model providing advertising space to law firms.

What we now seek to do in TechMarkia (not to be confused with our primary company Trademarkia described in the previous paragraph) is to create our very own online news publication covering the most innovative and exciting Internet companies in Silicon Valley and around the world through original journalism and research. This new publication will be independent of our search engine, and should not rely on, or quote back Trademarkia as a primary source of news.  We are creating a new online news publication focused around hot Internet startups in Silicon Valley. TechMarkia will cover interesting startups in the categories centered around the Internet (social media, ecommerce, mobile apps, search engines etc). We want to develop a unique writing style, one that is funny, interesting, and sometimes controversial.

Particularly, in addition to covering latest innovative Internet startups, we want to cover the stories that other leading Internet blogs (e.g., TechCrunch, Mashable, VentureBeat) may not cover. For example, the cupcake stand next to Facebook headquarters, or the experience of an organic chef at the Googleplex, or the interview/success story on the impressive weight loss of the former CEO of LinkedIn, or the rationale of the liberal and conservative aspects of a founder of Paypal who is now a venture capitalist, or the perspectives of incoming freshman computer science students at Stanford on their vision of the future of the Internet. We want to remain neutral and objective and unlike ValleyWag, we don’t want to go out of our way to flame. We want to cover the Silicon Valley from a human perspective.

In other words, we want to focus on the people, the cult, soul, heart, and personality that is Silicon Valley through original, on the ground, grassroots journalism.  Thank you for reading us early, and tell your friends..   Raj, Liz, Maria, and Bill. The Founding TechMarkia team.
