Our Week In The Web: February 26, 2016

This article is more than 3 years old.

Today is not a repeat — nay, it is a renewed summons for assistance as we gradually refine and, eventually, replace our website. Said website — available for your perusal here, and at beta.wbur.org — is, in our opinion, a dramatic improvement on the version of our site that you are currently using here, but it's absolutely nothing if it doesn't serve your needs as a listener and OnPoint.org visitor and reader. Here's what we need: visit the beta site, click around a bit, and then submit your thoughts (both good and bad) on the beta feedback form. Changes and suggestions you make here will really help our developers, producers and digital editorial staff make the choices and edits they need to best serve our audience when the beta site becomes our only site later on this calendar year. So get over there and start Interneting! We couldn't ask for a better focus group.
