Our Week In The Web: October 16, 2015

This article is more than 3 years old.

We've asked for your input on the value and use of our email account for during-broadcast comment and feedback a few times now — and nobody's said anything! Normally, we'd say that was an endorsement for not focusing attention on the emails for comment purposes, but then more and more of you keep emailing us during the broadcast, making it seem like we're wrong. So we're going to go ahead and figure out ways to make the email input process easier for you and for our production staff and host to read, process and respond to, especially when comments like this one are so usable and relevant. Your input, as always, is appreciated, but we also appreciate demonstrated use as indicative of required practice.
