Digital Journal’s bold experiment in publishing real news as an eBook is still a fascinating story, even 20 years later. We talk about the early contributors, the stage and even its cover art. Then, we look at how digital editions have changed the way news is reported.
Digital Journal’s bold experiment
Twenty years ago, Digital Journal founder Chris Hogg was still in school and began contributing as a freelance writer, but quickly rose to become editor-in-chief of the magazine. He was named one of Canada’s “media wunderkinds” by Masthead magazine, and transformed the magazine from a Toronto-based publication to a global network of websites and video content.
For 20 years, the publication has been on the cutting edge of technology, transforming Canada’s media landscape. It was started by a small team and has impacted millions of lives. The Canadian media landscape presents its own set of challenges, but the digital edition has proven itself to be a success.
The publication has a diverse team, including talented writers and artists. Digital Journal editor-in-chief David Silverberg and CEO Chris Hogg attended the event. Digital Journal’s magazine features a cover with a cartoon Bill Gates and his Sony Aibo dog, illustrated by Mirek Pieprzk. The image caused Microsoft to react with a scowl, as they wanted to buy ad space in the magazine.
The publication needed more staff to properly process submissions. It also needed to update and modernize many departments. It also needed to expand its editorial pages to 40 pages. During this time, scientists voiced their concerns, and the magazine needed to adapt. The new editors Arthur Gale and Jack Brimble worked together to make the magazine better for scientists.
Its early contributors
Digital Journal has been a pioneer in Canadian media and is celebrating its 20th anniversary by celebrating its first contributors, who contributed to the magazine’s growth. Chris Hogg, a Ryerson University graduate, was an early contributor, and soon rose to the position of editor-in-chief. He is credited with bringing the magazine to an international audience and spearheading the transition from a traditional print publication to a digital news network.
In the early days, Uiberall had a studio-style loft across from Ryerson University, where he worked and lived. This location gave him access to the talented pool of young journalists at Ryerson. It also gave him the opportunity to meet and work with members of the university’s journalism department.
Digital Journal’s magazine was published every week. It was a glossy product, and featured technology and hard-hitting topics. The cover featured a cartoon Bill Gates, holding a Sony Aibo dog created by Mirek Pieprzk. The cartoon drew Microsoft’s attention, and the company decided to buy ad space in the magazine.
As the magazine grew in popularity, the number of contributors increased. This allowed the magazine to expand its editorial page count from 30 to 40 and to accommodate the Letters section. It also expanded its masthead and began distributing to readers worldwide. As a result, the magazine published many important papers in the physical sciences. The first half of the twentieth century was regarded as the ‘golden age’ of physics, and the 1940s saw new discoveries and the development of atomic weapons.
As the digital industry continues to evolve, it’s crucial to recognize and support independent news sources. These voices are a valuable resource for citizens concerned with quality news, data privacy issues, and other issues. Digital Journal is one of these organizations. The company’s founding editorial director and CEO, Chris Hogg, was recognized for his work as a media “wunderkind” and helped lead the magazine from a two-bedroom apartment to a global news network.
Digital Journal, whose acclaimed print magazine ran for ten years, focuses on the quality of its content. In mid-2000, it switched from using the desktop publishing software QuarkXPress to using the Adobe InDesign suite. This transition made it easier to design a magazine, and it put easily printable PDF files at the forefront. In 2005, Adobe took an interest in Digital Journal and purchased thousands of print copies of the magazine.
As the industry changed and technology advanced, Digital Journal continued to innovate. They started a citizen journalism program that has since been discontinued. It remained on the cutting edge of digital media and has reached millions of people. In addition to its print and digital publications, the company works with business and technology events and established the Future of Media event series, bringing up-and-coming media figures to discuss current industry challenges.
Its cover artists
The Digital Journal is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a special issue covering the future of journalism. Its founder, Chris Hogg, started contributing to the magazine as a freelance journalist and quickly rose through the ranks to become editor-in-chief. He was named “media wunderkind” by Masthead magazine and led the transition from a traditional print publication to a digital news network.
The magazine grew in popularity, running more than 10,000 copies and highlighting technology, people, and culture. Its covers reflected the 2000s with who’s-who of technology and the people who shaped the decade. It also featured interviews with leading celebrities and political figures. The magazine has a vibrant community of supporters.
Chumak redesigned the Digital Journal website with a focus on subject matter experts. After one night of working on the magazine’s design, he had the idea for a magazine cover. In fact, Chumak and Uiberall met at the cafeteria of Mississauga City Hall, where Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion encouraged Chumak to continue his work.
As the world went digital, the Digital Journal was right on the cutting edge of technology, impacting millions of lives. While the company is still a small one, the success of DX Journal has made it one of the world’s leading digital publications, and it is still growing.
Digital Journal is celebrating 20 years of real news by celebrating the artist behind its cover. Artist Anita Kunz has contributed to several prestigious magazines, including Rolling Stone and Time. She is also the illustrator behind many of the publications’ covers, including Vanity Fair. Digital Journal has also had the honor of working with COO Grace Krigstin, a highly successful businesswoman who has helped guide the magazine’s course. In recent years, the publisher has embarked on a number of exciting projects.
In 1997, the founders of Digital Journal teamed up with an art director and an illustrator to launch the publication. The duo worked out of a studio-style loft across from Ryerson University. This location helped them gain access to the school’s pool of talented students. The result was a magazine that was well received by readers.
