Prep for bean spillage: new website, News Challenge announcement, new everything

On June 22, a lot happens. Don't freak out.

By then, we'll have a new website launched -- courtesy of our fantastic Drupal design team at Civic Actions -- and at 2:30pm that day, Knight Foundation will unveil its 2011 Knight News Challenge winners at our annual MIT-Knight Civic Media Conference. In fact, even though it's a small invitation-only conference, we want to make sure you can watch the announcement live:

But by way of a teaser, on that same day, we'll have major announcements of our own. Two of them. Probably the biggest pieces of news since Chris, Mitch, and Henry Jenkins proposed the idea for the Center four years ago.

So keep your eyes here, even though they'll have to adjust to Civic Actions' brilliant new design.

At TechSoup Global we’ve been working hard on a new round of improvements to the TechSoup.org website.

I’m excited to update you on our progress and hear your feedback. A little over a year ago, we unveiled the first phase in a series of improvements to the site, including a new homepage design and enhanced search functionality.
