Love reporting, editing and living in the Mission. Right now I'm trying to figure out how you have a site with solid reporting, one that is engaged in the community and one that is sustainable. I'm sure all of these elements are connected, but exactly how has so far eluded me. We have some solutions that we will be testing here. One recent engagement idea has been to start getting up early and instead of writing a Good Morning Mission filled with aggregation, walking a new block each morning, taking photographs and posting what I find. I look forward to others joining me in this. What I can promise out of the experience is that you will see the block you select closer; think about what was in a particular storefront or space earlier in its history, and find an interesting mix of people out early on. The air also smells really good at 6:30 a.m.
