Where the Heck Have You Been?

Followers of the nytheatre i / Good News Theatre Blog: Please forgive my unannounced hiatus!
It has been a busy several weeks here at nytheatre.com.

As you may know, we recently won the Microsoft/Techsoup "Show Your Impact" Competition. Part of the prize package for this was $25,000 worth of software, donated by Microsoft.

Well, the first shipment came in this past week, and it's kept us pretty busy. Thanks to Microsoft's generosity, we have been able to upgrade our technology infrastructure. Pretty cool.

I've already implemented a bit of new technology on nytheatre.com that this new software made possible. Check out our reviewers page. You'll notice that the old-fashioned links have been replaced with newfangled "+" links next to each name. Click on the "+" to bring the reviewer bios right on the same page. (This is a technology called Ajax, and you can expect to see more of it on nytheatre.com as time goes on.)

Other stuff is coming...but so is the New York International Fringe Festival, and preparing for that has been keeping me very occupied as well! More on that tomorrow...
