The transformation continues

Last time I looked, 'hauling' wasn't on our list of job responsibilities in the newsroom.
But that didn't stop reporters Dan Sokil and editor Tony Di Domizio from volunteering their afternoon to help me and building maintenance guru Tony Arena to disassemble and haul away 25-year-0ld cubicles from the middle of our newsroom to make way for the new Community Media Lab.


Next up - cleaning out five and ten year old documents and media guides from old file cabinets, then we bring in conference tables and chairs purchased from the Chamber of Commerce.
When were done, we'll have a clean, open space for our staff and the community to use to meet, collaborate, and cover this community like nobody else.

look at the first 4-5 pics of the album. Software dev company here in Belgium. Self Made spaces.
I know we are in the centre of the newsroom; but it cant be bad to try not to be "too serious". Try to refresh if. Make it look like a coffee club rather than a school, people will feel more comfortable.
Here is a vid of "Le Soir" newsroom. Le Soir is a belgian daily, quality paper.
