I’ve been poking around in the Rocketboom archives in the past few days since they appeared in our class. I really wish that I had been more familiar with their product beforehand. If so, I would have asked them how they decide on the stories they run each day.

This week they ran a feature story on Fragrance Week. Today’s story, “Mish Mash,” is really more of a performance piece.

Rocketboom balances these pieces with more “traditional” newscasts like this one that starts out on North Korea’s nuclear test and moves onto CBGBs closing down.

I would have liked to hear a bit more of the behind-the-scenes stuff from these guys. Guess that comes back to the “be prepared” mantra.
