The show itself is just an incredible listen. It’s fascinating to read/hear what other people are writing about and get just that tiniest glimpse into other lives…. Taken collectively, the blogosphere offers an incredible look at not just the “big issues”, but also the tone and shape of our mundane lives at this point in time… People’s real lives are vibrant, tragic, joyous, tear- and laughter-filled, and sometimes deadly dull and boring, and I want to chronicle my little piece of that, for whomever wants to read it.
That someone felt it was worth reading to the world, well, that’s just about the most amazing thing that’s ever happened to me.
Mel, They Read It!, Cabezalana, June 15, 2007.
We’re happy to announce the arrival of another new intern. Nick Allen comes to us all the way from Portland, Oregon. He heard our shows on Major Jackson and The End of Free Will and got hooked on our podcast as a CS/New Media major in college. Now he’s looking for a place to live this summer — if you happen to know of anyone looking for a roommate near Harvard Square, let us know.
The GBH news generated a lot of questions, as expected, and we don’t have answers for all of them. We will keep producing the show after July 1st, probably from a different studio in town. We might use PRX to distribute it. We’re asking our stations how they can best access it.
There will be new freedoms that come with these changes, and some difficulties too. Losing a home on the Boston airwaves will be tough, but more and more of our audience listens online or podcasts. So, we’ll necessarily be realizing more and more of the web 2.0 of it all, retrenching but surviving and keeping an important experiment and a vital new community alive.
Checks and Paypals still rolling in. New tally coming. Thank you! Thank you!
