Oregon Coast Beach Connection/BeachConnection.net
has its roots in a magazine that was on the central coast for
almost ten years. As it changed hands over time, it became obvious
the technology of the Internet and of handheld devices was going
to eventually eliminate the need for print publications, having
made sizable dents in that industry already . It was decided in
the summer of 2005 that the switch would be made to the Net, and
in early 2006 the current model of BeachConnection.net came into
existence, as its daily news stories began circulating on Google
news and a variety of other news and RSS feed networks.
In late 2007, the website began utilizing video
on top of the other various cutting edge techniques for distributing
content, and now has a growing number of coastal videos on YouTube.
In 2008, BeachConnection.net began utilizing revoluntionary
new technology that allows automatically changing content that
search engines can pick up on. This allows for small boxes that
constantly stream new headlines, as well as weather information
and other useful content.
Late that year, BeachConnection.net began expanding
and launching new media sites: DailyNewsOregon.com,
More unusual and visionary approaches will be added
to this and the other websites soon.
