Random Thoughts1) Ray Murphy, Ben Waxman and I met to talk about the site, potential for the future, etc. One of the things that we talked about was the need for a larger and greater diversity of voices on here. So, whether you are someone who is one of our contributors but may not say much, or whether you are someone who is only a reader to this point, I would heartily encourage you to get involved. WRITE. You have something important to say, and you can help shape Young Philly Politics. Whether you are a student, a teacher, a lawyer, an organizer, unemployed, underemployed, whatever. You have something important to say. Say it.
2) I don't talk much about sports on here, and I will continue that. But man, I think the Phillies are winning just to kill us all in the fall. But... if they can win tomorrow, sweeping the Giants, they are at five hundred, and on a real roll.
3) Great article by Jeff Gelles about how the collection of your personal information is stored and used by everyone from internet merchants to CVS.
4) We will, hopefully reasonably soon, be moving the site to CivicSpace, which should really make the site more user friendly, and encourage even more participation.
