Hard as it may be to believe, it has now been fully one entire week since the online version of our campus newspaper has gone "on line" (to use the lingo of the "Information Superhighway").
Some believed it would not last--that no venture of this sort would ever succeed. The staff are to be commended on throwing that bit of naysaying into the dustbin.
Many said that such a bold move would damage the fine reputation of the beloved paper version of Weevil State's weekly, but the staff believes with it collective heart that such is not the case, and that this version continues to uphold the high quality and hard hitting journalism that has always graced the august gray pages of its paper brother.
One of the benefits of publishing a daily online journal of this type, a format called a "BLOG" (Internet slang for "web log") is that it allows the staff to more closely follow campus events--we are able to press our fingers to the pulsing jugular of Weevil State University and instantaneously determine its heart rate and health, and interact as never before to create dynamic synergies and stories which resonate.
Another benefit over the paper, weekly version is that THE PROBOSCIS is now "interactive", in that readers may comment on stories and ask questions that may be pertinent to others. This has allowed an entirely new level of dynamism and inclusiveness and diversity, along with other synergies, which have not yet even begun to be explored in full.
Where will this all lead?
We do not know, but the staff is certain that if we continue to shine the light, the people will find their way.
In conclusion, we wish to thank all of our readers and the Journalism Department of Weevil State University for making this all possible.
