Talk of the Sound Radio

What Are Those Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down Icons on Talk of the Sound Stories and Comments?

Next month will be the fourth anniversary of the weekend in 2008 when I sat out on my patio with my laptop and began banging out what was officially launched as Talk of the Sound on September 1, 2008.

At each approaching anniversary, I like to take stock as to where the site has been and where it is going. Reader engagement is always an important part of that reflection.

Adding an up/down voting module to the site is a sort of "next step" in the evolution of reader engagement on the site where you, the reader, can vote on the quality of a particular article or comment. The criteria is intended to be the value of the contribution to the site -- the clarity of the writing, the quality of a particular insight, the tone. Articles and comments that are useful, well-written and informative get voted up, articles and comments that are self-indulgent, rambling rants get voted down. You, the reader, are recommending what you believe other readers will find interesting and worthwhile and helping them avoid drivel and dreck.

Trinity Elementary School's Children Lives Are At Risk

ShareThis

Fot 765011Yesterday morning, a 5th grader from Trinity Elementary School tried to set fire to the T2 bus, scorching three seats in the back of the bus.

This child has previously been punished at school for having a lighter and yet when principal Briceno was called to assist in the incident, he said he was too busy to go outside.

The incident was not reported to the police, the child was not punished and out on the playground for recess after his lunch period.

Trinity's children lives are at risk. How do you think the parents of the children on the T2 bus would feel if they knew about yesterday mornings events?
