A Postcard from New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Greetings from sunny New Haven! Actually, today was overcast, raining, and cold (although not quite as bad as it is in Ithaca, for sure), but after a five-hour trek from the Hill down to Connecticut, we’re here nonetheless.

Why, you ask? The Yale Daily News hosted a conference this weekend on the web operations of college newspapers, and I came here with a delegation from The Sun, including Assistant Web Editor Mike Wacker ’10 and editors emeritus Julie Geng ’08 and G. Scott Russ ’10, to attend the conference. We’re all really excited to be here; every paper does things differently, so everyone had some experience to share with each other.

Anyway, the purpose of this post: I gave a short presentation on The Sun’s own website, and I wanted to share that information with all of you. If you’ve got any questions, email me and I’d be happy to answer.
