I enjoy reading the Knight Science Journalism Tracker, an MIT website that gives timely peer review to popular science journalism.

Awhile ago I found a link to an RSS reader called Good News on this site. It was fun while I had it, but thanks to a reformat due to overly gregarious bluescreens, I lost the installer. It's one of those independent open source thingers with an address buried deep on a personal website, if I remember right, and its name is making it impossible to search for. Could anyone help me find it again?

I start a new job next week at a local newspaper in the production end of ad sales...ie. design. This will be the first time I've worked in three years.

I used to work at a high profile 24 hour Cable News Network located in Atlanta, GA, which shall remain nameless, wink. wink, in a very stressful, high responsibility position... [more inside]
