goings on

A bright and sunny Monday morning here at Cambridge Common. Katie and Chip apparently spent their Sunday's pondering music, and shared some knowledge with us last night on that topic. Chip considers the whitewashing of the Black Eyed Peas, and Katie describes the ideal community created by Kuumba. I meanwhile, wrote a note about Cambridge Common's first month in its new form and the way in which the community created here is our biggest asset. Also, check out the pictures from Friday's exciting labor rally!

As per usual, share your thoughts and have a great Monday!

What does Cambridge Common have to say about Alito? Come on! It's been news for like 3 hours!

So I've come to love Cambridge Common overall -- thank you Andrew Chimaobi, Deb, Katie, and all commentors for giving me a seemingly productive way to procrastinate writing my thesis :)

The only problem I have with it -- well it's a double-edged sword kinda -- is how fast it moves. It takes me a little while to mull over thoughts, and I usually reread a post before commenting, since I want to be as thoughtful as possible. Thing is, by the time I write something, there are at least 2 or 3 new discussions on top of it, which basically crushes hope of new people finding the discussion in the first place. And it's sad because there are a few things I'd like to have more-than-cursory conversations about. I have no idea how to fix this issue, or if it even should be addressed, but at least it's some food for thought.

I'd also like to see more comments from you, Andrew. You write many posts, my friend, but comment on few, unless something is directed at you. I'm sure you stay up reading all of the posts and comments, and I'm sure you have lots of opinions about them (why else would you have started this site?), so why not engage more directly with the mortals? :)

Other than that, keep up the amazing work!!

I comment! Mostly in defending my own ideas, but I comment. I don't know, because I get to post on the front page, I feel a bit like it's overkill to dominate the comments section, but I do comment when I'm so inclined!

I hear you on the other thing, I'm trying to work on things to do about that, including the possibility of a pretty massive redesign. I'll get back to you!
