Writers


ArnoldIT.com’s Beyond Search has a stable of writers who contribute material throughout the week. When Stephen E Arnold is on the road or otherwise engaged, stories appear under the writers’ bylines. When Mr. Arnold is on the job, he often uses the default signature which attributes the stories to him.

Stories appearing in Beyond Search are work for hire; that is, each of the writers is compensated for his or her contribution. Suggestions and criticisms should be put in the comments section of the blog, which represents my opinions and interests on the day the stories appear. For more information about the editorial approach, check the About page of this blog.

The blog became available in January 2008 and now contains more than 5,700 articles. You can run a query on a search or content processing vendor and get a reasonable idea of what the company has been announcing over the last 30 months. Keep in mind that we chide giant outfits and tiny ones as well. We try to combine information with some observations you won’t find in “real” news publications.

If you want to submit articles, write to seaky2000 at yahoo dot com. If you want to advertise, use the same email address. Stories in Beyond Search diffuse world wide in a matter of minutes of their publication in the blog. From our rural Kentucky complex in Harrod’s Creek, we offer information that the blue-chip, azure-chip, self-appointed experts charge a lot.

Beyond Search is free, and the writers and I hope it is useful and sometimes fun.
