Disclaimer: For those who don’t know me, I have a propensity for writing long-winded posts (and emails), so I apologize in advance to those not patient enough to wade through them fully. I try to be thorough, and I hope such posts are worth your time.
Today’s topic is templating in the Courant News platform; specifically, the philosophy behind it and some of the special or unique features.
This morning on Twitter I announced that the Yale Daily News would not be migrating to the Courant News platform this weekend as initially planned. That immediately prompted some questions about whether this meant that Courant was not going to be released until next fall when the YDN launches. The short answer: definitely not. The long answer follows.
This personal blog has been a long time coming. I’ve toyed with doing such a blog in the past, but could never maintain interest. Now that I’m involved in a number of public ventures, I thought it would be appropriate to have a soapbox upon which I can talk about things in more depth than a 140-character tweet will allow. I hope you enjoy!
P.S. If anyone wants to help with a logo/header for this blog, I’d be eternally grateful.
