End of Days (Not Really, Though)

The physical True/Slant space

True/Slant, an incredible news site with an amazing team, is closing up shop soon. I was privileged to be part of that team on the night the site launched last year and to be among the site’s talented cadre of writers, many of whom are saying “Goodbye” here.

I have been honored to write about privacy, law, & technology for the site. It allowed me to harass Mark Zuckerberg; find and share cool stuff with my readers; expose ridiculousness; use the word ’skank’ repeatedly; ponder the state of privacy in today’s world; and share lived experiences when privacy and digital living collide.

I have enjoyed getting to know my readers and fellow True/Slanters, and I know our digital bonds will live on. After all, the Web means never forgetting. And I think that’s a good thing.

Do not worry, faithful readers. The Not-So Private Parts will continue on. Details forthcoming. In the meantime, please keep in touch by friending me on Facebook or LinkedIn, or following me on Twitter. I would give you my cell phone number, but that’s gone poorly before.

A special thanks to Lewis, Coates, Michael, Andrea, Steve, and Roger for imagining and creating a tremendous space for writers and readers.

    Hey Kash, I hate to see T/S, you and all the rest of the crew go. I’ve followed several of you and found your articles very informative and interesting. Good luck. Hope to see you all on some other blog…..your friend,CATO

    Hope this is the push out of the nest you need to find your own wings. You’ve got a great career ahead of you.

    Best wishes- Steve

    Bummer, but best wishes. You’re now my very first Twitter leader.

    Thanks, Kash, it was lots of fun. I’m sure we’re all the better for the experience. On to even more fun…

    P.S. Thanks for helping find my bugs :-)

    Bye, Kash. Your posts have been relentlessly interesting and a pleasure to read. I’ll miss your writing, but I’ll pick it up at the next blog/magazine/twitterfeed/whatever.

    About Me

    I am a writer, reporter, editor and blogger. I'm an editor at Above The Law, where I blog about lawyers, judges, law firms and the legal industry. Here at True/Slant, I write about our changing notions of privacy.

    If you have story ideas or tips, e-mail me at kashhill@trueslant.com. I've hung out in quite a few newsrooms over the last few years. Currently, I can be found in Breaking Media's Nolita office. In the past, I've been found in midtown Manhattan at The Week Magazine, in Hong Kong at the International Herald Tribune, and in D.C. at the National Press Foundation and the Washington Examiner.

    I have few illusions about privacy -- feel free to follow me on Twitter: kashhill. Or friend me on Facebook... though I might put you on limited profile.

    What I'm Up To

    • Staying Above The Law


      Over at Above The Law, I write about lawyers, law firms, judges and the legal industry.

      We especially like “colorful news.” (Yes, that’s a euphemism for gossip.)

      Check out the site here and my stuff here.


    • Writing with real ink

      While most of my writing occurs online at Above The Law and True/Slant, I do occasionally venture into the world of print.  These are some of the magazines and newspapers that I’ve written for:

      The Washington Post

      Washingtonian Magazine

      Time Out New York

      The Orange County Register

      The Washington Examiner

    • Recent projects

      washingtonian issue for tsThe latest (and longest) “real ink” project: the cover story for Washingtonian Magazine’s December issue.

      While I’m usually a writer and reporter, I’m sometimes asked to play pundit. In November, the New York Times asked me to write a mini op-ed for its Room for Debate blog. In December, BBC radio asked me to talk about Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook privacy settings for its Newshour (19:00 minute mark), based on this True/Slant post.
