Ars Technica, one of the world’s most influential technology websites, has launched in the UK. Edited in London, Ars Technica UK builds upon Ars Technica’s reputation for impartial, high-quality journalism with in-depth technology coverage, of the UK and Europe. This is the first digital-only launch for Condé Nast Britain, and the site can be found at www.arstechnica.co.uk.
Ars Technica UK – the name is Latin-derived for ‘the art of technology’ – specialises in news and reviews, deep analysis of technology trends, and expert advice on everything from the fundamental to the inspirational. A leader in longform conversational media, the site will also host a significant online community.
Ars Technica was founded in 1998, when Founder and Editor-in-Chief Ken Fisher announced his plans to start a publication devoted to technology that would cater to what he called ‘alpha geeks’: technologists and IT professionals. Ars Technica became a trusted source for technology news, tech policy analysis, breakdowns of the latest scientific advancements, gadget reviews, software, hardware, and nearly everything else found in between layers of silicon. Acquired in 2008 by Advance, the parent company of Condé Nast, Ars Technica currently has offices in Boston, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and London.
