Green Voices For Bainbridge Island is a new site devoted to environmental issues. I discovered them via Rachel Pritchett's article in the Bainbridge Islander (print) but it is also in her blog: thank you Rachel :) The Green Voices site includes a very sobering assessment of the total neglect of our elected elected officials and of the people who have been in charge of open space toward parks in Winslow. It's probably because most of them don't live downtown. Disastrous non planning and missed opportunities. A very different view from the usual fuzzy congratulatory articles about the pseudo wonderful work of the open space commission.
The working bees at the Buzz are saying bye, bye :( Many thanks and congratulations for your excellent work. I hope we -as a community- can find a sustainable way to use the internet to report about what's going on beyond what can be produced by the usual mainstream media.
Patricia teases me about not posting frequently on VoB while I am pointing to groups who are not posting. She is right that I have been posting much less on VoB, for a lot of reasons, including the fact that I am maintaining several blogs professionally so I tend to try to limit the time (huge already) that I spend in front of the screen.
It was a year ago that Mark started blogfish. Congratulations :) I wish there was more mainstream information about the state of the oceans. Maybe Mark could have a regular chronicle on NPR? After all Audubon sponsored Birdnote. When are we going to get a daily serving of fish radio?
Thank you Jay for pointing us to Spartan Sports in Review: "All the news, recaps, play-by-play and other content involving
the Bainbridge Spartan sports scene that won't fit in the pages of the
Review. Written by Review staff writer John Becerra, Jr. " I think it is the first blog from the Review. Maybe not the last?
Gallery Fraga opened a blog and podcasts. I love the idea. Remember the interviews of artists on Voice of Bainbridge? Unfortunately most of the recordings are now unavailable since the server where they were stored closed down... You can listen to the artist talking about her work: great :)
Rachel Pritchett, reporter for the Bainbridge Islander has started a blog: Bainbridge conversation. Good for you Rachel and welcome in the world of blogs. Since you know I had asked for a long time that the Kistap Sun starts blogging I congratulate you for being the first to do it or are there other new bloggers among the Sun's journalists? The next step will be for you to start podcasting as already do many journalists: since they -often- carry a recorder and do record interviews, why not share them with the public via podcasting? Voice of Bainbridge has done it since its creation: I think it would be a great added value to your blog and your reporting. May I also suggest that you start using a digital camera? A blog with picture is infinitely more engaging.
