Happy Birthday to us! TechTV Forever is 5 years old, give or take a few days!
Our first post was on December 16th, 2004, which was a simple welcome, and our first bit of content was on December 21st, 2004!
Since then, the blog has grown, made itself more than established on the Web, collected a good number of readers by feed and by visit, interviewed some great television personalities and stars, and hopefully worked to keep the spirit of what was TechTV alive on the Web. The goal here isn’t to bring TechTV back to television screens (although admittedly we were certainly hoping for it 5 years ago), but now to help you recreate your own TechTV and all-tech all-the-time programming both in audio and video formats using all of the great technology programming out there on the Web today.
Best of all, you can do this with the same familiar faces and voices that helped you get through your technology issues, troubleshoot tech problems, and inspired you to learn more about technology years upon years ago!
We dabbled in tech articles and news, and you told us to stick to the shows, so we did – and if you’re interested in those goodies, check out Gears and Widgets, where I write regularly on tech topics, news, and other events of interest, and The Classy Geek, where I write about lifestyle and technology topics. TechTV Forever is all about keeping you up to date with the best podcasts, IPTV shows, and tech-based multimedia available.
TechTV is gone gone gone, and we’ve all moved on – and make no mistake, TechTV necromancy isn’t what we’re about at TechTV Forever – it’s about making sure good technology programming (embodied by TechTV) is always (and forever!) available to people who share our passion about it. So we’ll keep up our work, and keep bringing you the best in tech.
So in the future, we’re looking to bridge more content from other blogs like Gears and Widgets and The Classy Geek, add more podcasts to our collection and maybe broaden our horizons past people who were involved with and on the old TechTV, and of course, keep bringing you regular updates and reviews of the shows that are already out there, news from the TWiT and Revision3 camps, and more. Let us know what you’re in the mood for, and we’ll keep working to bring it all to you.
Here’s to another 5 years!
