For 10 our goal is to reach technology enthusiasts.
Back in the day they created Excel Macros, Windows 95 Tips and tricks, etc. Today you create music, manage photo collections, create art, build robots, blog, write scripts and build web sites with technology. You attend events like Makers Faire, Reboot and Lift.
We want to create a place that you want to be a part of.
We're refining the content style on 10 to now also include text entries highlighting interesting software and services. The videos will show interesting software from inside Microsoft like applying Getting Things Done to Office 12, building your home network and of course gaming! On the outside we want to highlight cool stuff folks are doing with tech, conducting interviews with interesting people from the community.
Along the way I'll admit we made some mistake with tone and probably went way too much MTV, but we're learning and trying hard to make it much more unplugged and more timely.
One thing I think we're still missing is a simple, crisp one liner beside the logo that succinctly frames what we are doing. Like 10 - Tech, Life, Cool Stuff.
So we have some questions...
What do you want to see on ten?
What style and tone do you think works?
What should we keep doing?
What should we stop doing?
What should our tagline be?
If you read our manifesto, we want 10 to be what our users want it to be.
So here's your chance to help us make 10 great.
