Some of you know about a project I’ve been kicking around regarding distilling the news of the blogosphere for an audience who would never frequent blogs. (A group also sometimes known as “the vast majority of voters.”) It’s time to do it. I need a web designer and a lot of good advice. A friend of mine did tell me about a web design company, swearing that it was the Best Greenville Web Design Company around, but I wanted to shop around a little before I settled on one company or person.
Frankly, a lot of this comes from disaffection with what’s happening right now on the netroots and my abject sense of dread at having to defend being a Yellow Dog Dem once the Dems end up giving more support to the occupation than they should. So — even apart from my responsibilities with Ron’s campaign — this sort of work is probably going to be a better place to spend my time for a while.
I’ll still be around (here and DKos), but I can be something more productive than a hyper-Cassandra (i.e. a Cassandra about the consequences of other people being Cassandras) on the blogs. I have a few more diaries in me on the topic and then it’s time to do some real political work on the Intertubes.
Because I am making so little managing Ron’s campaign — due largely to my setting my own salary (within reasonable limits) — I can offer only pride as payment. (Oh, OK — and some cut of the eventually humongoid profits. Details to be — cough-cough — worked out.) Seriously, only laborers of love should apply, and let’s let success be an unexpected bounty.
You know how to find me.
