Introducing Technically Philly: covering the Philadelphia technology community

Philadelphia’s technology scene is, well, growing, expanding, maturing, developing, whatever.

There are a host of worlds and working parts to it, different scenes, from Center City, to Old City, to South Philly, to the northwest and West Philly, up to the ‘burbs and, well, in some way, everywhere in between.

The problem is that there is no one home, no one portal, vessel for all of those cultures and news and events and updates.

I think I’ve found it.

With Web designer Sean Blanda and graphic designer Brian James Kirk, I am proud to introduce Technically Philly: covering the community of people using technology in Philadelphia.

We very-soft-launched on Feb. 9, then slowly followed different people on Twitter, and now want to go into an open beta of sorts.

We’re regularly posting news, views, Q&As and profiles and we think we now have the most comprehensive, easiest-to-navigate calendar of the Philly tech scene of all, but we still have a number of surprises yet to unveil. Anyone interested in this emerging scene or technology communities at all, ought to be following us, no matter your location, but particularly if you’re fortunate enough to be in Philly.

All Web and graphic design-credit goes to Sean and Brian. Mark me down as a staff writer at best in the credit category, but I’m happy to be a part of the project.

I’m really excited about TP for a number of reasons, not least of which is the potential to better unite this very growing, thriving community of people. We want to be a must-read for everyone there.

I’m also excited because it feels good to let this project go. I have at least three more announcements in the vault, waiting some more organization, structure and development – a couple more might be worth more note, too, soon.

Lots going on, now let’s just hope it all runs somewhere.

For now, just add Technically Philly to my spiraling list of blogging experiences.
