(The Hosting News) – Is it hype or ripe? With so much information vying for readers’ attention on the Web today, CIOs and IT managers need a source to filter out the hype and provide just the news they want to know in a quick-hit, succinct forum. Add the ability for high-level IT pros to share ideas on-the-go without a clunky registration process, and you have the forum that Logicalis (www.us.logicalis.com), an international provider of integrated information and communications technology (ICT) solutions and services, is now offering through its newly launched “Hype or Ripe” blog site – http://HypeOrRipe.com.
“The content on HypeOrRipe.com will give readers brief, to-the-point items of interest. More importantly, it will give them a forum where they can interact with each other quickly and easily,” says Lisa Dreher, Logicalis’ vice president of marketing and business development. “This is a forum where IT pros can come together for fast conversations without the hassle of registrations before chatting. They can even sign up for updates on their mobile device by texting Ripe to 55678 and give their opinions while on the run. It’s the perfect format if you only have a limited amount of time and need a quick idea or second opinion from your peers.”
Logicalis’ new HypeOrRipe.com blog asks its readers to vote on the importance of each topic so the company can weed out what’s not of interest and focus on what CIOs and IT managers want to discuss. The goal of the blog site, though, is to have just enough news items to create meaningful dialogue, and to give IT professionals a place to come where they can talk openly with peers and share ideas.
