I have always wanted to have my own outlet in order to discuss many of the topics that interest me day-to-day. I wanted this outlet to be personal but also unique and separate from my other online ventures. Andrew-Robinson-Online.com is that outlet.
But what is Andrew-Robinson-Online.com? Is it a review site? Is it a consumer electronics site? Or is it a film website? The answer is, it’s all of the above and more. The reason I decided to call the site Andrew-Robinson-Online.com had nothing to do with ego, but rather clarity. As a technical journalist, filmmaker and general nerd, my everyday interests span beyond mere home theatre or the like. By choosing to have the site bare my name, it (my website) would never be boxed in and encompass any one topic or genre.
Will Andrew-Robinson-Online.com discuss topics pertaining to home theatre given my affiliation(s) with other such publications elsewhere? Yes, yes it will. But rather than talk about home theatre through the lens of mere reviews -though I’ll occasionally have those too – I want to broaden the scope of the discussion and thus hopefully enhance the dialog. It is my personal opinion that while reviews are an important part of the consumer electronics ecosystem, ideas, concepts and honest two-way discourse are equally important. Reviews are notoriously one-sided, where a person shares with you their opinion, often without a great deal of context, and then moves on. Sometimes there is a back and forth that results from the publication of a review, but more often than not, the review is heaped upon the populace and then dismissed. A review of a product or service can be good, even helpful, but only if the broader context is understood by the reader (and the reviewer). It is that knowledge that I want to focus on. Also, many review-oriented publications are often genre specific, meaning they tackle but once concept, which is something I want to avoid here on Andrew-Robinson-Online.com.
I believe everything to do with technology and film is connected, and rather than focus on but one aspect of the chain -i.e. home exhibition -I want to try and bring you a more complete story. This is why I will often talk about topics that many may see as being more pro or non-consumer technology oriented. This is also why in the very near future I will be sharing with you the ins and outs of the making of a feature film itself.
