"Ulitzer is an original and unique tool for readers who seek quality content on any subject, and written by the leading authorities in their fields. "

Ulitzer Will Change the Face of Online Media
"The power that new media has to transform society is unquestioned. Gutenburg gave us books, the Lumiere brothers gave us cinema, Gore gave us the Internet, and now SYS-CON brings us Ulitzer," said Kyle Gabhart, founder of Cloudonomics Journal (http://cloudonomics.ulitzer.com). "Ulitzer is simple, intuitive, and provides a powerful digital tool for creating, distributing, consuming, and aggregating content. Within minutes of registration, I had a personal author site connected to my external blog and I had launched a new e-zine (Cloudonomics Journal) with content contributed from twelve different authors. Combining simplicity with powerful functionality, Ulitzer will change the face of online media."
