Onward State Blog

The Chronicle of Higher Education recently featured this video interview with a group of students at Penn State. Not happy with the available information market the students created a blog called Onward State, giving the news their own “fresh voice.” I was struck by both their enthusiasm and their dedication to keeping the project going. Started with just a handful of students, the blog now features the collaborative input of about 20 students using tools such as Google Wave for discussing article ideas in real time. Watch the Chronicle’s interview and visit the blog to see what these enterprising students have created.
