Bwog is the blog of The Blue & White magazine, centered on campus news and gossip. It was launched on January 30th, 2006. Some consider it to be snotty and elitist. Others consider it witty and entertaining. Most people read it regardless.
Bwog launched into fame in October 2006 with its nearly real-time coverage of the Minuteman stage-rush incident. Bwog's founding editor was Taylor Walsh. A popular sister blog launched in 2008 to cover the exploits of Hawkmadinejad. The site has undergone three serious redesigns since inception, notably on January 1, 2009 and September 22, 2012. Both designs were met with immediate backlash from readers, but just like Facebook, eventually people stop complaining and continue using the site.
