Black Friday: So Excited I Can’t Spell!

If you’re anything like me, you don’t have time–or at least tell yourself you don’t–to catch all the new broadcast, cable and streaming TV shows this upcoming Fall season. Well don’t worry, Washington Post’s Express has you covered with a...

nouveau water: it can fix anything!

I realize that the Washington Post Express is a free daily paper, so it really must rely on ads for upkeep, but seeing a full-page ad like this makes me hope that someone there at least felt a little bad...

metro: courtesy is a thankless pursuit

There’s one school of thought that etiquette exists to make others comfortable.* WMATA’s latest campaign seems to be right along those lines. The primary focus is to make sure that priority seating is available to those who need it, but...

DC schools: Paid for Grades

D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee announced plans yesterday to boost dismal achievement at half the city’s middle schools by offering students an unusual incentive: cash. — WaPo: D.C. Tries Cash as a Motivator In School Ok, what?! I’m all...

Music is for profit, not fun!

I won’t say that I didn’t see this coming, but I have been dreading it. Pandora may be near shutting down. Last year, an obscure federal panel ordered a doubling of the per-song performance royalty that Web radio stations pay...

iPhone: City Guide revisited

So I played around a little bit more with Washington Post’s City Guide iPhone application. With the restaurant search, my most likely to be used function, I’m finding a serious lack of listings around me that I know exist but...

WaPo wants a piece of the app action!

I just got e-mail from the Washington Post about their new iPhone application, City Guide. We are continuing to explore opportunities to translate features on washingtonpost.com for mobile audiences and the City Guide application was a natural fit. With this...
