Creating Technology for Social Change

Center launches project development blog

Chugging away quietly in the background since late summer has been a new development blog for Center projects, available at The blog features a more technical discussion of project plans, hopes, benchmarks, and solicitations for advice—in contrast to the outward facing posts at and the primetime posts at the PBS MediaShift blog.

We’re making the dev blog more public now so that you can contribute your comments on our work at an earlier stage—and also because at MIT we can’t help but show what’s under the hood.
