I love the new lay-out. It looks great! But I am afraid that Dorian has made a fatal mistake though. AC Today online gets its hits through the printed newspaper and quotes in cyberspace. He wants to eliminate both! The no-quote policy can't be enforced unless he has already made deals with Google (cache) and web archive .org, to name just two - can name a bunch more... The printed matter could have been reduced (to save money) to a news guide or something that makes you check out the site. Plus the advertisement revenues are much less online than printed. Love the Ambergris Today team to death, and hope that I am totally wrong!!!

I wish Dorian good luck,even though I will certainly will miss the ambergris today coming out every Thursday.A lot of their hits was generated the by printed paper and a lot of the local population don't have access to a computer. I agree with short that most of their revenues are generated by the newspaper and not online so I hope that they can survive.

Regarding the story on Mya and Larry Johnson - I find it interesting that they have the same photos on TMZ.com, which I presume that they bought from Dorian as he is referenced, but yet with TMZ you can download the original, and on ambergristoday.com they've posted their name all over it. I doubly find it interesting that while they are uptight about using their content without reference, they used Wikipedia without reference.

Finally - the site looks great but I personally feel that in absence of an actual newspaper, a website should look and feel like a newspaper - not MySpace.
