About TheDigitel.com and an invitation to make this site your own

Image by thedigitel-open-community2.gif

We are a small group of five folks that are far more interested in community coverage than profit.

And, we want you involved -- and we don't just mean in the comments.

But, let me step back a bit.

TheDigitel is a sort-of grand central where folks can get connected to the best, most interesting Charleston content in one easy-to-use spot.

We made the site like this as we founded it on the belief that folks are very interested in community coverage but are becoming increasingly overwhelmed by the number of local media outlets (more about that over here).

And now we're ready to embark on our second mission: To create the best local media site by allowing for responsible contribution and control by its readers, the Charleston community.

We know you, our readers are far more than just "readers," you are experts on your profession and your part of town. And we want you to share that knowledge with the rest of Charleston by contributing stories, tips, events, links, edits, spreading the word, and whatever else you think is important.

If you resonate with that message: We are looking for a handful of interested folks to test out all the buttons and knobs before we officially launch this new "Open Community." Please e-mail us if you're interested.

As Arthur Miller said, "A good newspaper is a nation talking to itself."

And here at TheDigitel, that nation is Charleston.
