1.0: Blog Network
W3life Internet Media was founded November 1st, 2006 by Mike Gdovin originally as a blog network meant to teach people how to use technology and get the most out of it. He recruited friends like: Ed Rochon, Steven Stinson, Eassa Ayoub, and Richard Campbell who wrote the blogs as did Mike.
2.0: Audio Podcasts
But the site was quickly switched over to podcasts in early 2007. Mike set up shows Leetspeek, Real Deals (So You Want to Buy A Computer), and The Freeware Show. Some shows like Leetspeek released a handful of episodes, while other shows released one or no episoeds. However the audio quality was not very good.
3.0: Video Podcasts
Mike found talented people that he knew to help him run W3life and make the decision as of November 1st, 2007 and switched W3life to an internet television company. W3life shows covered computers, the internet, and computer help. W3life's goal was not only to have experienced computer users watch our shows but we would like people who can barley use the internet watch our shows and enrich their experience and get the most out of their computers. Shows during this time period included Modlife, Computing to the Max, Freeality (Formerly The Freeware Show) and Let's Play. W3life recruited more employees to host shows like Reed who hosts Freeality, Stefano who is Mike's neighbor and hosts Let's Play, Matt Mcmullan who hosts Computing to the Max and Jordan Berman who hosts Modlife and serves and the vice President. Ed Rochon resigned from W3life in January of 2008 along with resigning from Tecker to pursue a career in Spanish. During this phase W3life only put out a few episoes. They put out one episode in March 2008 and then took a long break before filming some in summer 2008 in HD and never really releasing them
On October 23 2008, Mike Gdovin decided to shut down w3life since it was not putting out shows and was cuasing him fustration. Instead he took up writing on his blog, Gdovin.net and he started hosting The Weekly Spin, an independent podcast covering current news stories
