For awhile now, Boston commuters have been able to grab The Metro for free. There's armies of people giving them out at every train station. I used to read it, long before I got an MP3 player. Now I just find them annoying, shoving papers in my way as I'm trying to get out of the rain and onto the escalator.
This morning I noticed people in different shirts hawking different free newspapers. I don't have to go researching this, since BoingBoing has the scoop. Entitled Boston Now, this free paper hopes to be different by offering a "pro-am partnership" with bloggers, relying mostly on internet supplied content and very limited wire service content.
Hey, I wonder if I can get a column doing the Commute Smarter report? Maybe I should grab one of those next time?
