Here’s an interesting tidbit from The Atlantic Technology Channel this morning: the magazine is looking for great stories about adventures with tech in the home.
It’s true that this call for pitches is really aimed at freelance writers, but given the fact that home tech is one of the industry’s hottest forward-facing topics at the moment (arguably second only to wearables), it could certainly be a great opportunity to work with journalists who specialize in that subject.
From the post:
“We want to hear your stories about homes, about the physical and digital spaces where you live, about what draws you to them, and the defining rituals that happen within their walls.
Remember: Technology doesn’t just mean the Internet and gadgets—we want your adventures in architecture and systems and ways of thinking.”
They don’t want your standard formatted pitch. Also:
“We hope you’ll do a little searching before you pitch to see if the concept you’re looking into has been done before—not just by us, but by anybody.”
So this is a challenging one. But the resulting series would be a great place to showcase home tech products in action and their practical effects on everyday life.
