We are still actively looking for new authors.
German is a must, but we would be very happy to have writers on different continents who are familiar with the language. Maybe your family emigrated and you still use German at home.
One of the trends we are observing for the last six to twelve months is that we get more and more readers from China. Even on our native German written websites like http://gizmeo.com/ (our gadget blog) and http://zockerseele.com/ (our videogame weblog). It would be great to have writers from there who are able to tell our readers what is hot or not.
If you are from China, you do not need to speak German of course. Our websites are bilingual from the beginning (German and English, most of our sources are from foreign countries like USA, France or even Japan). It is only that we have not so many constant writing authors, so we are not capable to offer the content in more languages. Natively you still can use Google Translate from within our projects and choose one of 65(!) different languages.
If you think you can help, just contact us and we see what we can do!
It will be a good practice if you are interested in doing new media. See it as your individual training in writing for new technology websites. Of course you can use our sites and your texts as a reference when looking for a “real” job in this field. Your texts belong to you entirely, no strings attached. You can even export them whenever and wherever you wish.
Find out about what we are doing here: Where?
Well, yeah, that’s pretty much it.
Hope to hear from you soon!
All the best,

When searching us on Google you won’t find us: The first entries are “reserved” for a virtual character of a Facebook-Social-Online-RPG. Well, that sucks!
The artwork isn’t that bad and the description sounds promising:
“Aethyx is an elven rogue that stalks his enemies from the shadows. His clan, the Nalzir, are known for creating poisons that are as complex as they are deadly.”
We are here since January 2010.
This character was only available from March 24, 2011 until April 7, 2011.
So it should be clear who was first.
When we started this project, we wanted a name that would be original, never used somewhere else or just copied. Well, it seems it is time again to face reality: In this huge web, it is almost impossible to reserve or even invent a term. Someone somewhere will borrow/use/copy it.
What a pity.

There can be only one AETHYX in the world. Period.
As of now we represent independent online publishing on Facebook. You are able to visit our official page at:
The first thing you will surely recognize is this huge URL. Unfortunately we won’t get a smart address until we attracted 25 fans minimum. So, it’s time to give us your thumbs up! We included the notorious “Like”-button under every text, to make things fast & sexy.
In the future you will get all our news directly inside your Facebook-stream. You can also comment and share the entries from this particular page. So it should be easier to stay in touch with our supporters, fans & clients.
Of course you will also find our “Kura”-symbol there. As we said in one of our earliest posts, it represents our philosophy entirely.
The graphic we used there is from a guy named troley. It is called “cyberpunk awesome” and is attributed with a Creative Commons-license. To visit his galery on flickr, see: http://flickr.com/photos/torley/4294987703/. He has a lot of great cyberpunk stuff online.
This is it, for now. Read next month: How we made it into an RPG-Facebook-game. Believe us: We didn’t see that coming.

As of now we got a smart URL for AETHYX MEDIAE – Independent Online Publishing on Facebook!
Visit us via http://facebook.com/aethyx.eu!
Thank you, Facebook. (We say this explicitly because we do not have the minimum of 30 fans yet but were allowed to choose this URL anyway.)
As of today it is possible to participate in a useful project called the
Declaration of Internet Freedom.
Here is the text version of it:
We stand for a free and open Internet.
We support transparent and participatory processes for making Internet policy and the establishment of five basic principles:
Expression: Don’t censor the Internet.
Access: Promote universal access to fast and affordable networks.
Openness: Keep the Internet an open network where everyone is free to connect, communicate, write, read, watch, speak, listen, learn, create and innovate.
Innovation: Protect the freedom to innovate and create without permission. Don’t block new technologies, and don’t punish innovators for their users’ actions.
Privacy: Protect privacy and defend everyone’s ability to control how their data and devices are used.
To discuss and support visit http://techdirt.com/netdeclaration. You will find all the necessary information there.
Also, we made a short post about this important topic over at gizmeo.com, our gadget-blog: http://gizmeo.com/die-internet-freiheits-erklaerung/.
