Seattle is one of five cities with Xconomy websites. The site was launched in 2008 and its says the following about itself:
“Xconomy is dedicated to providing business and technology leaders with timely, insightful, close-to-the-scene information about the local personalities, companies, and technological trends that best exemplify today’s high-tech economy.
Xconomy’s goal is “to become the authoritative voice on the exponential economy, the realm of business and innovation characterized by exponential technological growth and responsible for an increasing share of productivity and overall economic growth.
“We plan to deliver this valuable content through a unique global network of localized blogs, events, conferences and other initiatives designed to better connect people and ideas.”
Part of its business model is hosting Xconomist Forums.
