The Mysterious Ditch: Part II.

In March 2006, four fearless reporters ventured into the woods to film a documentary. What they encountered cannot be explained. Click here to watch the video.

ice hockey fashionista.

I play ice hockey once a week for a team called the Phantoms. I love our team, but our uniforms are hideous. Our jerseys are a weird aqua-bluish green color, with purple trim. I'm hoping we'll get new uniforms next year. Black with kelly green trim would look waaay better.

This video clip shows some highlights from the game we played on Feb. 26 in Marlborough, Mass.

The footage was shot by my my good pal, (Southie gal-turned federal agent), Amy W.

E-Ink....and video?

A Belgian newspaper is testing out a portable, lightweight newspaper that uses "electronic ink" technology. This kinda thing could allow the newspaper to update itself with the latest news - while it's in your hands.

This technology was developed by some forward-thinking cats from MIT's Media Lab. They started a company called E Ink. I'm so intrigued by this, I hope other newspapers are looking into it. Imagine how nice it would be to have interactive features built right into the newspaper -- say, when you touch the photo from last night's Bruin's game, it starts moving and you could watch a video clip of the game.


Christian Science Monitor tour

On Thursday, March 2nd the New England SPJ chapter took a tour of the Christian Science Monitor's headquarters. It's a gorgeous building.

(Unfortunately my camcorder ran out of juice before we got inside the newsroom)
