Two days out and things are looking great here at ChicagoNow HQ. Our bloggers are doing a bang-up job, covering everything from yesterday’s crushing Blackhawks defeat to Chicago’s parking meter meltdown to Chicago’s reaction to Prop 8.

That caused a lot of little problems during the day, but we think we’re past them now and on... Read more »
We’re updated to a new version of our website software. Most changes are built around improvements to the registration process, which should be easier and less buggy.
We’ve installed several updates in the last couple of days. We’re now up to version 0.6.6. The latest couple rounds have primarily focused on improving the registration, sign-in, and profile creation/editing process, but we’ve also stamped out some other bugs and made improvements, including: Better identifying what blogs a post comes from Fixing some user...
