Oh, SmAlbany!

Daily posts and occasional longer essays about politics, culture, and life in the Capital Region...updated M-F, midmorning


"I write this not as a booster of Albany, which I am, nor an apologist for the city, which I sometimes am, but rather as a person whose imagination has become fused with a single place, and in that place finds all the elements that a man ever needs..." -W. Kennedy, from O Albany!

Times Union bloggers

Taking their own advice: It wasn't but three weeks ago that the TU ran a story about corporate blogs - companies that hire bloggers to write for them. Now it looks as if the TU is going to start hiring bloggers to cover local high school sports:

Timesunion.com is looking for creative, compelling people from the Capital Region to write weblogs for the upcoming 2005 high school fall sports season.

It doesn't matter if you are a first-string student-athlete, equipment manager, student, parent or spectator - all that matters is a love for high school sports, writing, and originality.

Your focus can be narrow or wide, your experience can be first-hand or third-party, and it can center on the fall sport of your choice. Just send an email to webmaster@timesunion.com.

Wow. That's qute a shift in the tectonic plates of journalism, no? It will be interesting to see how it goes. P.S. They weren't kidding when they said hyperlocal! P.P.S. I'm not sure this bodes well for the longterm health of professional print newspapers. Who cares, though, I'm signin' up! P.P.P.S. Will we finally get decent in-depth high school sports coverage, or is this going to be a deluge of bad writing from bad journalist? The latter is a very scary thought....
