Job Change

Posted By on Thu, Jan 11, 2007 at 1:38 PM

Well, it's official. This week I started my new job here at Seven Days — I'm the paper's first online editor.

I just called 7D a "paper," but in fact all newspapers are now morphing into multimedia enterprises that repurpose their content for a variety of platforms.

I have to talk like that now that I'm an editor.

We're still working out how this change will affect my writing, though it's already clear that I'll be writing significantly less than I have been for the last few years. Enjoy my cover story this week — it'll be my last for awhile.

I'm doing a lot of big picture thinking right now, so if anyone wants to offer suggestions, I'm all ears. I have a lot of ideas, experiments I want to try, things I've been wanting us to do for years that for whatever reason, we just haven't been able to do. Like embedding links in the text of our stories — I actually learned how to do that the other day, and have finally started embedding some links! Yay! An itty-bitty baby step, obviously, but exciting if you're me.

One of my new responsibilities is putting together an email newsletter that we're launching this week. You can sign up to receive it on the 7D website. I'm interested to hear what people think. I was skeptical of this idea at first, but I actually had a lot of fun putting together the first one. So sign up for it and leave your pithy comments here, please.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
