I’m getting tired of the current look up here, so over the next few days I’m going to be changing my page templates and various formatting options. Things are likely to get ugly around here before they get better.
This is a neat idea. The VenturaCountyStar has a new weblog which explains the editorial decisions behind the selection of stories and page layouts for that day’s edition of the paper. I think it’s a clever way to give readers some insight to a process which ordinarily is hidden from view, and thereby establish both trust and accountability. As in many cases there was never a good reason for this sort of thing to be "private", it just happened that way. As SixApart notes, it’s yet another example of increased institutional transparency thanks to blogging.
The blogosphere lost an eloquent voice when Steven DenBeste retired from political blogging (he still blogs about anime on his blog Chizumatic.) After his sudden departure there were occasional rumors that he was going to return to the field. Unfortunately, his reply explains why that appears unlikely to happen.
Best of luck, Mr. DenBeste. Thank you for your many fascinating posts over the years.
