I founded CoLab Radio about four and a half years ago with a vision for a site in which any person could publish any kind of media about her community. Today we’ve published nearly 300 writers, videographers, and photographers from little towns and giant cities all over this world. Most of our contributors have never published a blog post before they create one for us. Some of them have gone on to write for multiple publications. Others have said their one piece — the story about their work to make some place a better place.
Now it’s time for me to move on. It’s my last week at CoLab. I’m leaving with a storage vault of memories of the thousands of email exchanges and meetings it took to produce the content on this site. You all are funny, driven, talented people. It’s been my pleasure.
So I’m leaving you with a photo of my favorite ever street chairs, a lot of love, and a big thank you for putting your work up on CoLab Radio.
If you have any ideas for CoLab Radio, or CoLab media projects in general, it’s a great time to share your thoughts. CoLab will advertise a media director position in the new year. For now, brilliant guest editors are in place, waiting to hear from you. If you have a story about city planning you want to tell, email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
