Come By And Visit The New MicroTimes.com
By Stephen Lawton
you been to MicroTimes.com lately? With the release of our 200th issue,
MicroTimes is launching a new Web site with features we believe
will become invaluable to you.
In addition to our print content, we
are adding several Web-only articles, including a Question & Answer column
by Dave Moss, who has been writing Q&A columns in the United Kingdom for
seven years. We also are adding a daily newsfeed from NEWSBYTES News Network,
a division of Post-Newsweek Business Information Inc., a national technology
news service with 25 correspondents on five continents. Each day we will
carry 20 breaking news stories. .
Also new is the MicroTimes.com newsletter,
a twice-a-month notice to subscribers about what's new in print and on
the site. You can sign up to receive this free newsletter by clicking
on the newsletter link, or by filling out our readership survey, providing
us with your e-mail address, and clicking the newsletter box. Incidentally,
it is our policy not to share e-mail addresses - or any information -
with advertisers or anyone else. We collect them only to send you the
information you request. And if you fill out the readership survey, you
can enter our contest to win a $100 U.S. Savings Bond. .
We are augmenting our news coverage
with several databases. First out the door will be a jobs database through
a joint effort of MicroTimes and dice.com, one of the largest databases
of technology jobs on the Internet. Dice.com has more than 143,000 IT
jobs in its database.
Also new to MicroTimes.com is our searchable
database of ISPs nationwide. This search engine, co-branded with Portal
Opportunities Inc., lets you find a local ISP. We added a technology dictionary,
a co-branded database with whatis.com. The dictionary defines more than
2,000 terms and has a variety of quick-reference pages, plus more than
12,000 hyperlinked cross-references between definition topics and other
sites for further information. .
Another new section will spotlight
our print and online advertisers. We will continue to offer our Quotation
Netline, a service that allows you to request quotes for equipment or
services from our advertisers. But now you also can reach advertisers
directly. And if you want to contact an advertiser that doesn't have a
Web site, we will provide a Web page that puts the advertiser just a click
Of course, we will keep such features
as our listings of the locations of all MicroTimes news racks,
our publishing schedule, database of advertisers and advertising specifications.
