The Week In Review

The Week In Review is a new feature where I get to serve up the best of a week’s worth of Onward State stories. The following stories have been chosen both by their popularity by readers along with staff favorites between January 16th and 22nd.

The top post from this week was 10 Questions With Russ Rose. Take a look at the interview to find out about Coach Rose’s ‘look’.

One of the more popular Questions of the Day was this week’s question on themed parties. There are some pretty cool parties mentioned in the comments, it’s worth taking a look.

We’ve had some great new writers come on board recently and one of them by the name of Dan McCool has made a big splash with his post about why NCAA basketball is better than the NBA.

The extended hours of the White Loop have certainly improved the lives of those that would have been stuck walking all the way up to East Halls from Downtown. Nick, one of our writers stepped up to brave the early morning cold and possible interaction with the inebriated. Read about what happened here.

All of us at Onward State were elated to find out that we won the U.S. News & World Report award for Best Alternative Media Outlet of the Year. Even better, we were featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education with a great write-up and video feature.

Question of the Day: Sweet Mobile Apps

AT&T is sponsoring a pretty cool competition in which entrants can win $10,000 cash in scholarship money for creating a mobile device application. Teams of up to four people can enter a custom-built application for the purpose of e-learning.  The rules state that the “innovating e-learning mobile app” should be functional across multiple platforms. Submissions are due by September 15, 2010 and so far there are only ten teams signed up. So my question for you is:

If you could develop a mobile device application, what would it do?
