Want to Join White Noise?

Hello, and welcome to White Noise! Make yourself at home. It's a place to hang out, to unwind, to talk about tech or design or art or whatever else is on your mind. Previously it's existed as a forum on Gizmodo. Now, though? It's a blog unto itself. And you can be a part of it.

You may have already noticed that just by virtue of being a commenter around here, you have your own blog waiting for you at yourusername.kinja.com. To post to it, just head on over to that pencil icon in the upper righthand corner. Neat!

While anyone can currently comment on White Noise, to be able to author posts there in addition to your personal blog will require special approval. We're looking for people who can start interesting conversations, unearth hidden gems, and disagree with each other with a modicum of civility.

To get started, go ahead and reply to this post with something you might contribute to White Noise if you were an author. And be active in the comments of other posts as well. Eventually, this place is going to be entirely in the hands of you, the readers. This is your chance to help us start off on the right foot.
