LARGEREGO is an alternative cyberweekly published every Tuesday, come hell or FTP malfunction. Launched in October 2000 as a vehicle for Greg Olear's editorial columns, the ezine expanded to include features by Brady Richards, lists by Charles Sterne, Middle East dispatches from Jeremy Neuner, and more.
Plans include an independent music review section, a flashy new logo, world domination, and more work by people who did not attend Georgetown University. LARGEREGO is always in the market -- we use this term loosely, because we don't have an operating budget -- for contributions, be they full-fledged pieces or letters to the editor. For more information, see our Submissions page.

The Pulitzer, the Nobel, and the Nebula are awards LARGEREGO has not won. We have, however, had some nice things said about us. We made the Top 30 list at BACKWASH, no small feat, as they don't like many things. We were also reviewed by Netsurfer Digest, which had this to say:
You couldn't ask for a more appropriate moniker. This small weekly 'zine presents the musings of a very small band of mostly late-20ish Georgetown University graduates. Some of the content is humorous, some is insightful, and some is debatable. Head cheese Greg Olear discusses in a recent issue the topic of gun control, for example, toeing a delightfully liberal line - but forage a bit further through the commentaries, and we find Greg adopting a fairly conservative stance during the course of a brief monologue upon the Orwellian effects of PC-speak. Editor Brady Richards does a quietly amusing send-up of "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" with his "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Jerks", and it's probable that you've worked or lived (briefly) with somebody who shared some of these traits. There's likely a little something for everyone, here, but it does cause us to wonder a bit about the Georgetown environment.
