iMedia was acquired on 26 September 2005 by ad:tech expositions -- a division of DMG World Media -- and "the leading event organizer for global interactive marketing conferences and expositions" [http://www.imediaconnection.com/content/6833.asp].
Brad Berens -- Executive Editor of iMediaConnection, Inc. -- gave me advice for online writing (some of which he also spoke about at USC's Undergraduate Writing Competition on 1 March 2006). Two main points include:
- make the piece friendly
- address specific questions
According to Brad, "The online reader is in a HURRY and needs the writer to do a lot of the heavy cognitive lifting" (Email: "Edits requested" -- 17 March 2006).
Heavy prose threatens to lose the reader and puts unnecessary burden on the impatient online reader.
With Brad's writing guidance and with the supervision of Roger Park -- News Editor of iMediaConnection -- I have worked on three news articles to date that can be read at the following links:
