blogs and the Crimson: better, warmer...

While I complained mightily at the beginning of the race about inadequacy of the Crimson's election coverage, they've really picked up the quantity and analysis this week. Kudos peoples of Plympton. There are, however, four relevant questions: 1. can they maintain this depth (obviously not quantity/frequency) of UC coverage throughout the year?, 2. can they spread this model to other communities and student groups so that we can begin to build a collectively deeper understanding of our entire student community? 3. how have blogs effected/lead to the new depth of UC coverage (if at all)? and 4. can blogs (CC, Team Zebra, anyone else who gets into the game) learn from this and start to move into analysis of other aspects of our community? Who's got answers? Share some wisdom.

Keep in mind that The Crimson should probably reflect the interests of student body at large. While the readers of blogs might want all UC all the time, the rest of the campus doesn't care. The Crimson won't, and, in fact, shouldn't, keep up this level of coverage.
