OMB Added to CJR's News Frontier Database - and

I know we haven't used this blog overmuch. Busy, busy, busy as ever with producing Open Media Boston - and working on related projects like our upcoming Social Movements/Digital Revolutions Conference. But we like to share cool news; so here's a couple of neat updates.

First, we've just been added to the Columbia Journalism Review's News Frontier Database - which is kind of a big deal. Check out the nice entry they wrote on OMB.

Second, we also just go added to the Boston page of noted news aggregator They're an aboveboard outfit - founded by former Apple "Chief Evangelist" Guy Kawasaki and friends -  and they do a nice job of creating curated subject pages with info from trusted sources without ripping off source sites like ours (that last somewhat of a rarity these days). So we're now listed with all the mainstream Boston news media and a number of Boston area online community news outlets and blogs. Which is also a good thing and should bring OMB some always welcome extra traffic.

So as we work our way up the media totem pole this seems a fine time to remind our viewers that we're always looking for more talented journalists, editors and business side folks to join our "merry band of media pirates" as I sometimes put it. If you like what we do and you'd like to work with us, drop us a line at info [at] openmediaboston [dot] org and we'll talk.
