One month after relaunch, the Monitor's new set of publications -- this website, our print weekly, and our Daily News Briefing -- are works in progress. At the risk of boring you with detail, this blog is meant, in part, to explain what we are doing and why.
Today, for instance, instead of a "morning briefing" blog post, which I've experimented with for the past week, I am going to give you a preview of articles in the works today for CSMonitor.com. The contents of the old "morning briefing" will now be available exclusively in the Daily News Briefing (you can subscribe here if you want).

Present at the meeting are our managing editor, national news editor, international news editor, web editors, and others who keep us informed about work in progress in, say, the features, editorial/op-ed, and special-coverage areas (i.e., innovation, environment, money/economy).
