A great new resource for visitors and residents alike has recently shown up on the Yellowknife media scene. For the last three years EDGE YK has existed primarily as a free bi-monthly print magazine, but last week the company launched its new website. At the moment, casual net surfers can read three articles per month for free, following which they have to sign up for a subscription. I was subscriber #1 (or #3, depending on who you talk to) and I highly recommend it. Certain components of the site, however, will remain free - like the events page. True, there are several other events pages out there, but if EDGE YK applies the same energy and quality control to this page as they do to everything else, then it will be an incredibly valuable resource for anyone thinking of visiting Yellowknife. And, given the deep ties the people behind EDGE YK have to the arts community, I expect they'll become the go-to source for events info. So far, it's looking great.
