Within six months after its beta launch date of July 4, 2008, Ulitzer is projecting it will double its author count from 5,500 to roughly 12,000, the number of original articles published will be over 1 million, and the topic-specific online journals will grow from 5,000 to more than 10,000. Becoming a Ulitzer author requires an invitation from an existing Ulitzer author and is subject to review and approval by Ulitzer's editorial board. New author applications are typically answered within 24 hours.

Ulitzer will launch with OpenID. Google, IBM, Microsoft, Yahoo and Verisign have all become the OpenID Foundation's first corporate board members, giving a push to the seven-month-old group's ideas about portable web identities or OpenIDs and how personal information is shared online, something that Google, Yahoo and Microsoft have all caught flak for.
 
OpenID is a free decentralized sign-on technology that eliminates the need for multiple user names across Internet sites and is supposed to give people more control over their digital identities and what exactly is shared.
 
There are so far 350 million OpenID-enabled URLs in existence.
 
Microsoft has donated legal resources to the cause.

Ulitzer Will Change the Public Relations Game Once and Forever
The launch of Ulitzer will also change the "public relations" business the way we know it today. After Ulitzer, every PR representative will have a Ulitzer author page where he/she will publish client "news" under the appropriate topics, as well as on their author page. PR firms will also create their own company name "topic" in Ulitzer where news originating from their firm can be permanently displayed under the appropriate subject area.
 
Most important, with Ulitzer, PR firms can easily create author pages and submit articles for their clients. Once they publish their clients' bylined articles on Ulitzer, these stories will automatically be picked up not only by Ulitzer "topic" journals and magazines but also, under a Creative Commons license, by dozens of other technology magazines, both print and online.
