In the now-that-the-dust-has-cleared department, I should probably announce that Lawrence.com, one of the sites I work for, relaunched a month or so ago -- with a brand-new, design courtesy of Dan Cox and the sleek publishing system we've been working on for the past year. That is some complex all-CSS design work, and Dan deserves a heckuva lot of credit for it.
We added tons of new features, including custom user playlists, RSS feeds like crazy, user comments all over the place, a mobile edition and a bunch additions to the most heavily-fielded restaurant database ever publicly released (?).
Plus, we've got a smarter search engine and custom search alerts that let you get notified by e-mail, cell phone and/or RSS whenever we add content that matches your search terms (as reported on CyberJournalist.net).
The whole thing is turning into a combination of an events calendar, citizen journalism, Friendster and All Music Guide -- all in a local entertainment context. I love it!
