James and I are excited to announce some changes at BlueNC. Some new front-pagers ... and a commitment to developing BlueNCtv.
For starters, Frank Eaton has agreed to help us develop the BlueNCtv concept. As you may know, Frank is a documentary filmmaker who has helped several of our favorite candidates by providing professional quality videos for web promotion. He has some amazing ideas, some of which will take time and fundraising to implement. One of the more exciting ideas is to pair with a BlueNC writer to put together issue pieces. For example he might pair with Robert on a piece on health care in North Carolina, or with Greg on green architecture. Ideally, each piece would result in a long narrative video and a shorter piece suitable to run as an ad. If you have suggestions or need help with video you want to post on BlueNC, just let Frank know.
In addition, we have three new writers joining the BlueNC front-page team for the final six months of 2008. They are Linda Cockman (momoaizo), Steve Harrison (scharrison) and Dan Blue, III (Dan B).
Please join us in welcoming and thanking Frank, Dan, Linda and Steve. The next six months are going to be one wild ride. I can't think of a better place to enjoy it than here at BlueNC. Thanks to all of you for making BlueNC what it is - and for pushing us to make it even better.
Betsy and James
