Brett Tomlinson, PAW’s digital editor (he is our sports editor, too), has overseen development of the new site, which offers a fresh presentation of our Web-exclusive content in addition to the articles you can see in the print PAW. The redesign makes it much easier for alumni to read PAW on their cellphones and other mobile devices.

If you haven’t visited the site before, we invite you to explore PAW’s multimedia content, including podcasts, slide shows, and videos, as well as regular features such as each Wednesday’s Tiger of the Week. PAW Online also is a great place to comment on stories from our print issues or browse the archives, including more than 11,000 alumni memorials.

With this issue, we say farewell to Jennifer Altmann, who joined PAW almost five years ago and most recently edited the magazine’s Princetonians and Life of the Mind sections and expanded PAW’s books coverage.

Jennifer has been named editor of the Barnard College alumnae magazine. Barnard is lucky to get her. We expect to name an editor who will continue Jennifer’s excellent work at PAW within a few weeks.
