The experiment has ended. Roughly 8 months ago, the Star Tribune joined forces with blogger Twins Geek. The hope: a productive union of traditional journalism and online weblogs. The verdict: an unholy marriage, apparently. And this was just a baseball blog.

Uh...I'm confused.

This experiment ends this week, I think, since our contract was only valid through the end of October.


The story date is today, but is this old news?

The date of the "final posting" was November 22. I think that the phpNuke software is configured such that today's date appears at the top of the posting section. (The comments were posted beginning 11/22/04, as well.)

Because the baseball season was over, he didn't resume posting (on his own site), as far as I can tell, until March 6, 2005.
