Announcements

Results are in: you love the Digest. Traffic is up 25% and we’ve received really great feedback, so we’ve expanded the format to include press releases and we’ll be adding sponsorship opportunities and images from around the city.

There’s no school like the old school.. What’s old is new again: we brought back the original design of the site. After a brief stint with a theme that, well, was more trouble then it was worth, we brought back the classic design.

We’ve got some great new features queued up to deliver for the next few weeks, and we’ll keep you posted! As always, thanks for reading TDN.

Commentary

The kerfuffle between Cory and Conan has driven a fair amount of news coverage this week, with some contending that Cory drew negative attention to the city while others seem to think that the dustup was planned to result in Booker’s appearance on the show. I should have some inside baseball on that in a few days, but what do you think? Is the Mayor creating an opportunity to get Newark some positive press by going on Conan? Or is he cynically driving attention to his own skills as a media mogul? Leave a comment at TDN.

dailynewarker Yeah, but then there are all those very obvious slights that Conan is throwing in. I mean it really is kinda mean of him.</blockquote><p style="margin: -1em 0pt 1em;text-align: right"><cite><a href="http://twitter.com/ethigent/statuses/4527987927">&mdash;ethigent
