Changes and Surprises
New website, new college guide, and staff changes
Published: August 18, 2010
Editor’s note: This week, City Paper is full of changes and surprises, at least virtually. If you haven’t already, direct your browser to citypaper.com for a look at the new CP web site, and to weekly.citypaper.com for a look at our new online calendar system/interface. And hey, let us know what you think, either via email@example.com or @city_paper on Twitter.
This week we also launch 101, our first annual guide to Baltimore for college students. Hard copies are available on and around local campuses; otherwise, you can direct your browser to citypaper.com/collegeguide for the online version and/or follow @101baltimore on Twitter.
And please remember that you only have until Sept. 1 to vote in our annual Best of Baltimore Readers Poll, in which you determine what gets named the best of our fair city in our upcoming Best of Baltimore issue, hitting the streets Sept. 22. And the voter who gives us the best reason we should invite him or her to the party will win a coveted pair of tickets to the big Best of Baltimore bash.
Speaking of Best of, don’t sleep on our Personal Bests contest: make a 60-seconds-or-less video about what you think is best about Baltimore; upload it to YouTube, Vimeo, etc.; and send us a link to it via firstname.lastname@example.org, and you could win a pair of Best of Baltimore party tickets and other fabulous prizes. Visit citypaper.com/bob/personalbests for full details.
With this issue, we also say so long to copy editor Joe Tropea, whom we wish the very best of luck. We most especially wish him luck with Hit and Stay, his long-gestating documentary film on the Catonsville Nine and similar anti-war actions. For more information visit hitand stay.com.
