Editor’s Note: Hello again! Nice to finally be back up. Unfortunately, our events system might have taken the entire site down with it for the past few days, but our crack team of computer whiz kids finally were able to go in and revive the blog. That, or the blog achieved sentience and decided to […]
Photo Via Doctorsimcha.com In anticipation of the Hebrew awesomeness slated to invade Miller tonight (tickets are available at the TIC), Bwog would like to officially welcome the Columbia/Barnard Hillel blog onto the internet scene.

Because Butler doesnt weigh you down enough when you’re actually there: get the brand new LibX toolbar Firefox extension and you’ll never have to leave. Basically, LibX allows you to access CLIO while you’re innocently perusing any other website. You can also look for the Columbia crown logo when youre on Amazon or Barnes&Noble to […]
It’s truly a tragedy of convenience that, apart from class and free food, the sole reason we leave our rooms is to find out what’s happening on campus. And what better way to indulge our laziness than to eliminate the flyers that clutter campus walls and move them online? PostATime.com, the first branch of a […]

We at Bwog are always on the lookout for useful websites. Bwog daily editor Eliza Shapiro brings us the backstory on GlovesIFound.com.

Oh hello! It’s good to be back home on the web again. (Though according to B&W layout editor Hans E Hyttinen, we never actually left “the internet.”) Bwog’s crack team of computer whiz kids point to something server-related as the cause of our spotty presence this weekend. But no matter, said whiz-kids are working their […]
The Columbia Political Union has a spiffy new blog up which introduces itself as a “one stop shop for politics and political events at Columbia.” Hooray, consolidation!
