Cronicle Press launched just over a month ago, and already has 1,000 users, thanks in large part to you, the professionals of Ann Arbor tech, and your enormously generous networks. We intended to start small with a prototype of about a dozen interviews we could show potential interview subjects and eventually sponsors to help get the word out about the growth in Ann Arbor tech, but already the interest has grown. So, we’d better get started.
Ann Arbor has a deeply underserved tech space in media on a local and national level, and we aim to change that. Don’t get down on the local media. It’s never been a harder time to run a media business or to cover all the amazing things going on in Ann Arbor tech and business. It’s also never been a more important time of growth, in software and also in autonomous vehicle tech, biomedical devices, sustainable energy, and more. All of that is going on in Ann Arbor, right in our back yard, and we want to help foster deep media coverage and community building, doing more of what you already do so well: collaborate for the benefit of the Ann Arbor region and the tech industry.
