The Bulletin Goes High Tech
Congrats to the Bulletin for getting all excited and embracing a common Web technology that's been around for over a decade. Here's an e-mail they sent around this evening to their E-edition subscribers. (The E-Edition subscribers are the folks who pay for their online content and no, I'm not one of them -- I received this from a few different people).
-----Original Message-----In other local media news, KFXO is now officially owned by KTVZ's parent company, and you can read some more discussion at the always fun Oregon Media Insiders.
From: Webmaster [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]
Subject: Try our new sign-in system
You asked for it, and we listened.
Many of you have requested an easier way to sign in to the E-Edition, so our site would "remember" you.
Beginning Wednesday, we'll have a new, simpler sign in. Just enter your e-mail address and password -- one time -- and you'll never have to sign in again unless you delete your computer's "cookies," or you sign in from a different computer. Our new system uses a cookie, a harmless marker transmitted to your computer, to recognize you as a member automatically every time you return to the site. To take advantage of this new feature, be sure you have enabled cookies in your web browser.
Please let us know what other improvements you'd like to see. Just reply to this e-mail with your ideas.
Thanks for being an E-Edition member,
Jan Even, New Media Director
