Passing In Review #2 09.03.31 0602, originally uploaded by rowland-w.

It’s smooth sailing, more or less, at this point in the wbur.org redesign process. Some choppy waters are inevitably ahead, given how momentous the journey is; still it’s remarkable how things, at the moment at least, seem to be gliding along.

Clint Cavanaugh introduces the Twitterati to the WBUR studios during the fourth social media event, originally uploaded by WBUR.

I’m trying. I really am.

I refuse to be a representative voice of an old (can we substitute “traditional” instead?) media behemoth, infatuated with its girth and bellowing calls, blissfully ignorant of the tar pits ahead; dismissive of the fleet-footed rodents scurrying underfoot. (more…)
