Anvil Re-launches As Internet Society Resource
Free online magazine provides insight and entertainment

PORTLAND, Ore. - April 3, 2000 - Anvil Media, Inc. recently announced its relaunch of Anvil, a free online magazine ( that provides new and unusual perspectives on the issues shaping today’s Internet society. The monthly magazine will explore timely news, issues and trends relevant to Internet business, marketing, communications and technology.

"I’m excited to bring Anvil back into the fold," said Kent Lewis, president of Anvil Media, Inc. "While there are many more ezines and newsletters now than there were four years ago, I still believe there’s a void in coverage relating to the Internet’s affect on modern society."

Lewis resumes his role as editor-in-chief of Anvil, which he created in
1996. In the past, Anvil covered Internet marketing and communications-related topics ranging from Internet privacy and security
issues to HDTV, all from an advertising, public relations or Web development perspective. Originating as an email-based newsletter, the new Anvil will take on a Web-based magazine (ezine) format.

"Anvil was one of the best newsletters I received a few years back," said Fred Wilson, managing partner at Flatiron Partners. "I was able to stay on top of industry news and trends, and I look forward to the new format."

Anvil offers insightful, intelligent and often comedic commentary similar to ezines like Salon, Suck and The Onion. The new format has been simplified and expanded to reach a broader audience. Contributors will write about news, issues and trends in today’s Internet society. In addition, future issues will be more broadly focused, with the primary mission being to inform and entertain. Anyone can visit or subscribe to receive email updates when new content is posted. To read the latest issue, or subscribe to receive email updates, visit
