Citynet Magazine focuses on lifestyle, food, travel, beauty, dating, nightlife, geek*, health and wellness, tech, startups, money, humour, music, society, pop culture, and entertainment. “Geek” in the sense of being really into something, not necessarily the “nerd” connotation.
We cover stories that fit into any or all of the following:
Give a voice to novelty
People travel around the world looking for a different experience and forget that at any given time, there’s a lot going on in any major city. As such, our motto is: Rediscover your own city.
Citynet Magazine began as a personal website and blog on April 1st, 1997. At the time, there was no such thing as a “blog” as we know them today, making this website one of the first blogs in Internet history. The original website was hosted at AOL (1997-2000) and then self-hosted at BrianX.com (2000-2010), afterwhich it became CitynetMagazine.com (2010-present). While the site has had tens of millions of visitors, the most recent changes (Spring 2015) have included a new design and more city-centric approach (especially Montreal, Quebec, Canada).

There are many people involved and without their input, little could be accomplished. The site is run by a team of “web guys” although the content is the responsibility of each individual contributor as per the Terms & Conditions.
