Introduction by publisher

Cambridge Day began with the quixotic (and short-lived) mission of launching a daily print newspaper in 2005 with virtually no staff. It returned as not just a local news source, but as a learning lab to create a content management platform that might bring the entire journalism economy back to robust life.
