About The Unofficial Stanford Blog (TUSB)

Posted by at 12:00AM

The Unofficial Stanford Blog is a student group devoted to the authentic expression of Stanford voices and perspectives. We are a community of students, faculty and staff passionate about blogging and dedicated to innovation in online content and distribution. We exist to make life on campus more engaging, transparent, and fun.
TUSB is the brain child of Galen Panger ’07, who discovered that blog.stanford.edu was not registered on Stanford webspace. He quickly registered it and with the help of some friends created a student group to create a space for students and other Stanford affiliates to speak openly about things they cared about. The Daily wrote about TUSB in April.
After graduating, Galen went on to work at Google and left Jason Shen ’08 and Christian Tom ’08 as co-presidents. Christian and Jason worked over the summer to transfer the URL blog.stanford.edu to make way for a Stanford Blog Directory that is run by Ian Hsu, Director of Internet Media Outreach and member of TUSB’s board of directors.
Following their graduation, Christian and Jason transferred the blog to Josh Freedman ’11, who is currently working with a team of bloggers to improve TUSB and continue to further its mission of being a powerful institution for free speech and open expression on campus.
