"There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every question is a cry to understand the world. There is no such thing as a dumb question" - Carl Sagan
What is the purpose of 614now.com?
614now.com provides news and commentary for the Columbus community so you know what’s going on around you – from entertainment to traffic, weather and news that affects your life – As G.I. Joe once said, “Knowing is half the battle.” So bookmark it on your smartphone and you’ll be a regular internet, urban aficionado in no time.
Where do you get your content?
The 614now.com staff relentlessly scours the universe for information and a certain Gollum who will remain nameless. We’re looking for things we think might interest you, so you don’t have to. That’s when the magic starts…
What's the 'magic?
When we find something of interest, our creative staff goes to work telling the story in our own words and with a voice that is fresh, knowledgeable and most of all – real. You”ll also get splashes of commentary thrown in so you know what we think about the issues of the day – hey, at least we admit it! And since we’re all short on time, each piece is crafted in small, bite-sized chunks so you can consume and move on. If you want to know more, we provide links to a longer version of the story.
