The Fog Typography Vote

Written by Teddy Wing | Posted on May 29, 2008 - 08:23 PM

Looking at The Fog website one day, I wondered, being the typography lover that I am: should I be using left-aligned type, or justified type, like in the columns on a newspaper?

I thought about it, and decided that since I designed The Fog for user-created content, why shouldn't you have a right to decide?

A Farewell

Written by Teddy Wing | Posted on May 29, 2008 - 08:15 PM

Thank you for reading this year’s final edition of The Fog. The project began one night, early in the morning, when I woke up suddenly in a half-daze, in a fog, so to speak. Running to my desk, I scrawled out as legibly as I could in the complete darkness, The Fog online newspaper. After waiting two months for the summer to arrive, I hurried to begin development of the website. The project was really born out of a desire to give any student a voice in the community. The Fog was designed as a place for students and others to share their thoughts, ideas, and maybe even a part of themselves.

After three months of having my head buried in code, in September 2007 the time finally came to release this new creation out into the open. Response was slow to come at first. It’s quite possible that at first glance, most people didn’t realize the potential of having an online newspaper, open to everyone in the community.

In fact, I almost considered dropping the project one or two months after its release. Then in November, after several weeks of school performances and a Thanksgiving break, I published the first in-print version of The Fog.

Since then there have been two more in-print editions, and many new additions to the dedicated writing staff. This is one project that I really would like to continue, so that when I leave next year to go to the University of Undecided, I do not want The Fog to leave with me. It is very important for students to have a voice in the community, and this past year, The Fog has tried to provide an open venue for that purpose.

In preparation for next year, I have named Forest Kerstetter as The Fog’s new Editor-in-Chief, and Josh Augustin as its Chief Webmaster. I am confident that these two will be able to lead this online newspaper into a new dimension. I trust that the egalitarian purpose of allowing everyone to express themselves will be appreciated, and students will continue to enjoy the opportunity to express themselves on The Fog.
