Awake at 1:11 a.m.? Read The Columbia Daily Spectator
The One Eleven, part of The Columbia Daily Spectator‘s “Spectrum” blog network, is built atop students’ penchants for being awake at all hours and forever web browsing to avoid schoolwork. Each morning, at exactly 1:11 a.m., overseer Stephen Snowder provides a recap of the world in quick bits, sometimes serious and sometimes wacky. It appears to exist as the sarcastic younger brother of College Daybreak, a daily email breaking down world events in similarly easy-to-digest chunks.
Snowder explains the blog’s existence at the beginning of each post, noting simply, “It’s late. You’re up.”
