14 June, 2009. Launch day for Ryeberg. Welcome! We hope you’ll enjoy spending time here and visit often. Ryeberg Curated Video is an online magazine based in Toronto, Canada. Ryeberg publishes a very modern form: Essays that incorporate YouTube videos. Put simply, it’s writers, artists, and professional critics writing about the YouTube videos that inspire them.
Ryeberg is a free and independent forum, with no corporate backing and no particular political bias. Whatever political personality the website may seem to possess is accidental. The creator and editor of Ryeberg is Erik Rutherford, a writer and radio guy and sometimes contributor to Ryeberg who is big on respecting diversity of opinion and experience. To read more about Ryeberg, have a look at our About page.
