Fighting for quality news media in the digital age.

Conde Nast in first digital-only launch with website for ‘alpha geeks’ Ars Technica UK

By Dominic Ponsford

Magazine publisher Conde Nast has launched its first digital-only title – the technology website Ars Technica UK.

The site has been published in the US since 1998. The UK version is edited by Sebastian Anthony and has three other staff journalists: gaming and hardware editor Mark Walton, policy editor Glyn Moody and science reporter Cathleen O’Grady.

The new site follows the launch of another UK-based technology website last month by Creative Agenda called The Memo.

The Memo pitches itself between The Economist and Wired, claims to have a team of five editors and 11 freelance journalists.

In a press statement, Conde Nast described its new launch as follows:

Ars Technica UK – the name is Latin-derived for ‘the art of technology’ – will specialise in news and reviews, deep analysis of technology trends, and expert advice on everything from the fundamental to the inspirational.  A leader in longform conversational media, the site will also host a significant online community.

Both of the new technology websites are free to air and funded by advertising.
