For when I need more than 140 characters to finish a thought on marketing, media or message.

TBD.com goes live

Leave a comment

TBD, a website covering news and culture here in the metro area that is Disneyland on the Potomac, has officially gone live.

The letter from the editor (who would be one Erik Wemple) promises “an aggressive news-filtering machine” that lets D.C. metro residents access an area news feed just by entering their zip code. Wemple also admits all the kinks aren’t worked out just yet and asks the readers to bear with them as they grow.

I was sorta psyched for them until I read they have three reporters devoted to the Redskins year round.

Oh well. Good luck to them, anyway.
