Hi folks! Last week was so busy with important "back to back to back" 
extracurricular activities that we decided to release our first ever 
double edition of Open Media Boston this week - with articles from a 14 
day period. Obviously this regular blast communication from us is just a 
reminder of content that we're putting up all the time, but for those of 
you who don't check our site without this digital nudge - consider 
yourself double nudged. Enjoy!
