Adam Gopnik, a writer for The New Yorker and a New York Times bestselling author will be speaking on Friday, October 29 at city hall, Moncton, New Brunswick, beginning at 5 p.m. It is a "pay what you can" event, part of the Frye Festival's Community Read series. Gopnik, who was born in Philadelphia grew up in Montreal before moving to New York and then Paris for five years, the basis for his 2000 book Paris to the Moon. The community read series presents authors whose books are available in translation, encouraging dialogue between French and English-speaking communities both of which are prominent in New Brunswick.

The link to the Canadian Journalism Foundation event with John Stackhouse is wrong -- should be http://cjfglobe.eventbrite.com.

I would love for that Globe talk to be about the web site. I wonder what the initial effect on the audience is. Although, I guess two weeks doesn't give the audience time to fully adjust to the change. I spend much less time on the site than I used to and have totally stopped reading it.

I'm really interested in how it has been received. In my mind, it is seriously off-putting. On my lap top screen, the "Must Reads" are below the fold and the twitter like feed in the centre seems to have no organization.

The print product looks great, but the site is pants.
