Updated the “about” section….  What do you think? http://www.projects.umwhistory.org/alumni/about.html

sometimes I walk out of Monroe and scream

I’m starting to get frustrated. First, let me say, that I have this other pretty important paper I need to work on (pretty furiously) over the next few days, so my involvement with this, which has been pretty much 90% of my time, will decrease slightly. The combination of the two projects is a significant […]


So, what have I been up to lately? Well, on Sunday Roxanne and I spent about a bagillion hours reading/scanning Bullet articles to put in our collection.  I haven’t really thought about copyright issues, but it’s The Bullet, so who really cares, right?  I went through about a decade (mid-90’s to now) and so there […]


Hey everybody. Hope everybody’s spring break was swell.   I went to New York for a couple of days, which was pretty fun.  On the way home, my flight was canceled, so I was in the airport for a while, which was not as fun.  I spent some time there working on a new “maybe” […]

Website is up…

On the internet.  The real internet.  You know, the one Al Gore invented.  What with the interconnected tubes and all. http://www.projects.umwhistory.org/alumni/ Now, it isn’t nearly perfect (which is where we’ll eventually be) so don’t look at the problems too much. And I didn’t do nearly as much work on it tonight as I had intended […]


See how good I am? I am posting on my blog! Chalk up some class points for me, Matthew Stuart Downs. Todays class was pretty good in terms of getting things a little more organized. One of the things I’m really happy about is that now we are able to put our site up on […]

I love posting blogs.

Okay, so I haven’t been posting a whole lot. Not my fault. Excuses, excuses, excuses.  I promise I’ll get better at it.  I just always forget to post after I work sooooo hard on our project.  I’m going to turn over a new leaf! So what the heck have I been up to?  Well, I’ve […]


 Oh, wikipedia… what an interesting site.  Such a vast database of information, but oh so many factual inaccuracies.  They try though.  And by “they” I mean wikipedianerds.  In looking at the discussion tab, I chose the Mary Washington wiki site, it became apparent to me that some people are very intense over the integrity of […]

Emily Chang’s List

That is a lot of little tools to look at…..   Not a huge fan of the organization of the site. It has a really stupid name, but twiddeo is what I’ve found.  I think for our project we will need to host video interviews with alumni.  There is youtube, of course, as a video hosting […]

A comment too long for the comments page…

…And a title too long for the title line. This started out as a comment on Juliann’s latest post about the amazing site she found. It got longer and longer, and I thought I could (and other people) could find this better if I made it a post of my own. Also, I wanted a […]
