Meanwhile in D.C.

You’ve heard, by now, the big news over at DCist. Exactly one week ago, a scrappy, vital link in the increasingly fragile local news ecosystem was unceremoniously snuffed out by a union-busting billionaire.

I’m deeply proud of the work we accomplished at DCist in my two-year tenure as editor-in-chief, which was made possible by the dedication and creativity of multitudes of writers who came before us. The archives of the site serve as a record of a growing city, an encyclopedia of 13 years of life in the nation’s capital that was by turns hilarious, enraging, informative, and never boring.

As a journalistic endeavor, we aimed to be a knowledgeable friend, a site where you could have found an enterprise investigation into failing playing fields and detailed coverage of inauguration protesters next to updates about the latest protest and information about how to stream free movies courtesy of the public library. In between, we dug up stories about a bartender who inadvertently got thousands of calls from C-SPAN viewers, chronicled how black yogis are changing the largely white yoga community, warned you not to let your dog poop on this guy’s lawn, and so much more.

Each day, we started that wide-ranging conversation with our “Morning Roundup,” a compendium of the stories that we were reading and thought our audience would want to peruse as well.  There’s still excellent and vital journalism happening around town. So until further notice, and without further ado, I’ll be rounding up dozen or so of the stories each day that continue to chronicle and change life in the District of Columbia.
