Hi folks,

Be sure to check out this week's top stories at www.openmediaboston.org:

News: Grass Roots Festival Blends Politics and Fun in JP

Editorial: Questioning the Great Massachusetts Biotechnology Giveaway

Note: This was a fairly slow news week for us. A couple of our crack 
reporters were away, and things naturally slow down a bit in the summer. 
So we thought we'd take this opportunity to mention that that Open Media 
Boston is a social media news site. As such, we are only as good as the 
contributions we get from you, the viewers, from week to week. We'd like 
to encourage you all, especially the nearly 150 people that have signed 
up as Users on OMB to always feel free to submit content in any media 
form anytime. And be sure to comment on content that's already posted to 
the site. If you've never posted content or a comment to OMB before, 
check out our handy User's Guide at 

NEW: OMB viewers - whether signed up as Users or not - can now post 
events listings to our new Upcoming Events section in the left-hand menu 
column of OMB by following the instructions at 
http://www.openmediaboston.org/usersguide#event. Listings are moderated 
by OMB staff.
