Bullet points.

So again, I've been meaning to write for a while.

Unfortunately, whenever I have the time to do so, I typically fall asleep.

But before I pass out tonight, let me share a few bullet points with you about life at the Ball State Daily News.

• The Daily News ditched its domain name (bsudailynews.com) to be a part of Ball State's College of Communication, Information and Media's new initiative, Unified Media. Unified Media consolidates all student medias, so all staff members work for The Daily (the new entity) while putting out their respective products.

• The website (bsudaily.com) has a lot of kinks to work out. I'm currently assisting in solving those problems. I'm also working as an iDesk editor with several other staffers.

• One of the website's kinks is its inability to support Flash. We're working on getting that resolved. It emphasizes, though, how badly I and my staff need to pick up coding.

• The design editor and I have planned a "The Science of ..." series, explaining how different things affect the human body. The first to run will be "The science of getting drunk." We have a "high" version for 4/20 and caffeine version for midterms. For Valentine's Day, we'll have a "falling in love" one.

• I'm presently working with my editors to devise a social media strategy that we can integrate with The Daily. I'll keep you posted on that.

All this while taking classes.

More later.
