Our relationship with MIT Technology Review goes way back. As kids, some of us remember running to the mailbox to grab a copy before mom & dad got home. Tech Review is one of the oldest, most well-respected publications around and several folks at Upstatement (as well as our parents) have been longtime subscribers.
That's just one reason that we're excited to announce that Upstatement led the redesign of MIT Technology Review's website, launching today.
If you don't already know TR, you should. For 116 years, they've written about tomorrow's technology in a way that the world can understand. Think of it as the love child of Wired & Scientific American (though smarter than the former and more accessible than the latter).
All along, they've been known for groundbreaking reporting and design. The great Muriel Cooper led the design staff in the 1960s, when the magazine established its iconic Bauhaus-inspired identity. Today, it provides an authoritative filter for the overwhelming flood of information about technology.
We'll write much, much more about the redesign process in the coming months. For now, we want to celebrate the launch and congratulate our partners at TR, who have been hard at work bringing the site to life. In particular, we want to thank the core team of Erik Pelletier, Vanessa DeCollibus, and Emily Waggoner, as well as the entire editorial team, who are responsible for all the amazing content, the design department, whose art direction inspires us, and the TR developers, who have been working their magic behind the scenes since this past summer.
