About AlwaysOn
AlwaysOn ignited the open-media revolution in early 2003 by being the first media brand to launch a global blog network. The AlwaysOn Network was launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos in early 2003. AlwaysOn was applauded for focusing on the sweet spots in high-growth markets where technology innovation is disrupting behavior and creating new entrepreneurial opportunities for both big businesses and startups. The centerpiece of AO's editorial efforts is researching and publishing its annual Top Private Company lists: The AO Global 250 (our overall top list), the OnMedia 100 (advertising & marketing), OnHollywood 100 (entertainment), GoingGreen 100 (greentech). In 2004, AlwaysOn continued to lead the new media industry by being the first to "socially network" its online readers so they could see each other and connect. Today, bloggers interacting with readers on a wide variety of topics have become accepted and often trusted alternative sources of valuable insights and information on the AlwaysOn Network. No other media brand has dared to foster the level of open interaction and transparency between its members that AO provides, and our editors and program producers intend to keep it that way.
