The Vox Box

The internet— too pushy?

I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but does it seem that the mainstream... everything... is trying to shove you onto high-speed internet? I had dial-up for years, and hated it, because all the best games and software required a high-speed connection, which I couldn't have. It was sad. Of course, I eventually found a way around it in buying a wireless receiver for my desktop and tapping into the neighbor's 'net. But I digress.

Has anyone else had problems like this? Are Microsoft and Apple making shoves toward a broadband-centered humanity?

« Back to The Vox Box

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at http://voxxiez.blogspot.com.
