When I view the Verge, I can’t help but think that I am reading a newspaper. It is in a layout that to me, revolutionizes the digital news, yet brings printed news to the web. It takes the style of a newspaper and finds a way to bring that form factor to the web. The whole feel of The Verge is that of what I imagine what will replace printed news eventually, and I can’t say that I’m disappointed. Any other thoughts?
Forums on The Verge.
There’s two types of innovations. The ones that only work inside of the tech industry, and the ones that can be recreated in other sectors. The Verge is more than content – it is a database with comparison tools, a forum and a community. Every content site should be this. But can they just copy The Verge’s model?
