CMPnet includes but does not replace TechWeb, CMP's previous attempt to aggregate its various sites.
The announcement, coming on the heels of CMP's IPO on July 25, comes with no financial or strategic details due to the Security and Exchange Commission's imposed "quiet period." CMP raised over $110 million through the IPO, which was designated to pay outstanding credit debts and general corporate expenses.
CMPnet will serve as a front door to CMP's technology-oriented online publications and will also feature independent reporting of technology headlines of the day and editorial commentary.
"Each of CMP's Web sites offers a unique perspective into a slice of technology," wrote Jeff Pundyk, editor of CMPnet, in an editorial on the site today. "Together, they bring you the entire technology spectrum."
