Online Media Cultist — It's On!
Welcome to Online Media Cultist! For what OMC is all about, please see the freshly written About page, which I’ve pasted below.
For now, I apologize as the final paint and polish is getting slapped on around these parts (much and huge thanks go to Blogcritics Technical Director and pal Phillip Winn for getting this site up and running so quickly and so well). For all of y’all folk who followed Dumpster Bust via RSS feed, you should see uninterrupted service, but please hit me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you notice anything awry.
Very excited to be here to explore the Interwebs from the cultist’s perspective. Hope you enjoy and I wildly encourage you to join in on the conversation. Cheers ~ EB
About Online Media Cultist
Online Media Cultist lurks and percolates and sizzles and snaps on the new web frontier. From social networking to social news to social media to social studies (one of those might not be covered as much as the others) OMC serves at the alter of what’s new and hot and fresh and webtastical. Whether its blogospheric machinations, golden start-up discoveries, or the maddeningly glorious convergence of what’s old and new, what’s expected and what’s about to become the fleeting norm, Online Media Cultist is there to bear (can I get a) witness.
If you think you might be a card carrying online media cultist, you already are. And by golly, you’ve just found your new home.
Some recent greatest hits (these stories originally appeared in Dumpster Bust and were imported to OMC at launch in late March 2007):
About Cultist-in-Chief Eric Berlin
Online Media Cultist has its roots in Dumpster Bust, a wide-ranging e-zine and later blog that delivered miracles from mind trash to the masses. While covering politics and television and music was super fun, it became clear to me over time that I wanted to focus my attention on the Interwebs, a universe I fixate upon and examine and revel in all day as a web producer in downtown Los Angeles.
I’m also the exec producer of Blogcritics, an online magazine of more than 1,700 superior writer/bloggers. It’s my pleasure and honor that Online Media Cultist is the latest addition to the growing BC Network of sites, which includes GlossLip, Desicritics, BC Goodie Bag, and Confessions of a Fanboy.
