A site I’ve been working on recently launched: it’s a blog for the Columbia School of Journalism called New York World. The project was managed by Jeff Tancil and designed by Britta Frahm.
If you’re interested in New York City politics, I recommend you check it out!
Just made a donation to C. Murray Consulting for the excellent Recommended Reading: Google Reader Shared WordPress plugin that’s powering that part of the sidebar. It’s a well-conceived product, worth using and supporting.

How fresh is this thing on the sidebar? The six tiles are my most-listened-to artists of the week. The source data is courtesy of my last.fm music profile, which monitors the music I play in iTunes. The WordPress plugin is written by Gary Fenstamaker.
This is an example of the awesomeness of open source software and, in particular, the developers in the WordPress community.
(I should note that if you have a non-WordPress blog, you can still get the widget because the author also provides a standalone PHP version.)
I mean really? So many things are new right now on this here blog.
- Upgraded to WordPress
- …with avatars!?
- Design changes
- Transitioned to a new RSS feed
- …that you can SUBSCRIBE TO WITH iTUNES (insane!)
On top of all that, I think there will really be more content. WordPress makes it really easy to post. You can even use applications on your desktop or iphone to make posts!
Plus? It was pretty fun to do this little project! I got kinda obsessed with it on Saturday night and pretty much worked straight through on it until now. I love doing stuff like that.
