It’s alive

The Boston Globe’s Newton site finally launched today, http://www.boston.com/yourtown/newton. Yet in protest, I refuse to actually link to the site.

I will say that the site is well-designed. But it still sort of stinks. It had about, oh, a dozen Newton TAB links and other GateHouse pubs in the New England area. What are they going to do if we stop publishing our stuff? Just rely on bloggers? Or wait, will they actually have their own reporters do the work?

The scary part is that they 1) have ads on the site and 2) the real estate section.

We shall see how this development evolves.
