About New Rising Media
New Rising Media is the definitive source for coverage of what is new & undiscovered in technology, social media, science, movies, music and games, which was founded in 2010 by Jason England. New Rising Media's mission is to provide breaking news coverage and in-depth reporting about new, undiscovered subjects that fascinate us as human beings.
Editor-in-chief, Founder: Jason England. An obsession in the smallest details of any piece of technology, scientific experiment, film construction, song texture or product design perpetuates my interest to an almost niche perspective. Something that I passionately share with everyone who is generous as to divulge their time and attention. As a journalism student who was criticised on using language that was "too flowery," I instead made New Rising Media around the idea of inspiring readers with what fascinates me through an offset concoction of words, which I like to call "nerd journalism."Follow @squishy_gorilla
Film writer: Helen Gould. Two of the things I'm best at are having opinions and watching films. Granted, the latter doesn't take much effort on my part, but I have a 100% success rate. I once had aspirations to be a screenwriter, but on realising just how difficult that is I decided to bend my writing talents elsewhere – hence journalism. In my spare time I re-read my Robin Hobb collection, mock bigots on the internet, and completely legally download many films and TV shows. My biggest movie-related berserk button is when Greek mythology is messed up. I'm looking at you, Clash of the Titans. You didn't even bother to have any titans.
Science & Technology Writer: Harvey McDaniel. Science and technology is where my interests lie, and for years I’ve silently hoarded their stories all to myself, but no longer, thanks to New Rising Media. Anything new, reimaged or just fantastic and I’m already interested. In my spare time though I’m rather more “Type A” nerd, and I love competition, from playing PC games like Supreme Commander and Nuclear Dawn, to the CCG Magic the Gathering I can’t get enough of it. On the more sedate side I do enjoy writing stories of things that interest me, usually Sci-Fi, so I think I fit the bill for the site quite nicely.
