"After much work, stress, and wringing-of-hands, I'd like to officially unveil Digital Home Thoughts, the new home, and new name, of the site formerly known as Digital Media Thoughts. When I launched Digital Media Thoughts a few years ago, the name and focus of the site made sense to me at the time. In truth, a bit more research would have told me what I later discovered: the term "media" in the site was confusing. "Media" means one of three things to almost everyone you ask: people involved in advertising and PR would say that "media" means the press (journalists). Some people would say that "media" means blank CDs and DVDs - as in, blank media. And others (definitely the minority) would say that "media" in the context of the word "digital" means different digital audio/video/photo formats."
The remainder of the explanation about why I changed the name, and of the upcoming re-launch complete with prizes, can be found over at Digital Home Thoughts (DHT for short, nach). Digital Home Thoughts is for everyone, because we cover digital cameras, video cameras, audio players, HD everything, photo editing software, and all sorts of gadgets.
