AtDetroit, LLC News Release: July 7, 2004

AtDetroit, LLCis pleased to announce that the AtDetroit website DetroitYES.com has been chosen as the featured website in the July 6, 2004 Detroit News special article on Cool Michigan Websites. Entitled "Detroit walks on the wired side" the article includes color pictures of the website and AtDetroit partner, Lowell Boileau, along with an extensive complimentary article.

EXCERPT
“If you stand in Detroit and look at (the ruins), they’re so impressive, and they beg a big question. It really says ‘What went wrong?’ It’s grist for artistic energy.”

What started as a way to chronicle Detroit’s ruins — much like those of Athens and Rome — has become a virtual community. More than 800 people who are registered on Boileau’s online forums discuss everything from the latest downtown development plans to the state of Detroit’s schools to incidents such as the June 23 shooting in Hart Plaza.

Boileau, who gets donations to keep his site going and designs commercial Web sites for paying clients, hopes it’s a uniting force.

“I’d really like it to be something that would unify all of Metro Detroit — the city, Windsor and the suburbs,” he says.

Such sites serve an important function, says Jerry Herron, American studies professor at Wayne State University and author of “AfterCulture: Detroit and the Humiliation of History” (Wayne State University Press).

“I think what Lowell and others have done has shown people how to see (Detroit) in a way that’s hopeful,” Herron says.

“He gets people to talk to each other about what they see. ... People begin to belong to this invisible city by virtue of conversation. It makes real life in the real city more hopeful and fun.”
