Be Well, Do Good Work, and Keep in Touch
Since Michael is turning off the lights, I think it’s time I said my so-longs as well.
True/Slant has been a regular part of my life for almost a year. I became familiar with the site when the fantastic journalist, Ryan Sager, asked me to site sit for him while he was on vacation. After a week of writing for his blog, Neuroworld, I was convinced that this was a place I wanted to stay.
What stoked me the most was the fresh thinking behind what Lewis Dvorkin and his team had started here: recruit great writers and give them the freedom to build their brands and drive traffic to the site. I hadn’t seen this concept successfully employed at any other credible news site, but one taste and I knew it was for me.
In addition to Lewis, I want to thank Coates Bateman, Michael Roston, Andrea Spiegel and Steve McNally for making my time here truly a pleasure. I sensed the dedication of this team from the beginning, and in the months since have only become more impressed with their passion and commitment. You folks started something quite special here and I hope you are proud of it.
As for me, I’m pleased to say this is a temporary goodbye. As some T/S writers have already mentioned in their farewell posts, we’re not exactly sure what the next chapter will look like, but we’re looking forward to contributing to it.
