I’ve received some messages from readers of Paradigms Lost asking what the future of the blog will be now that True/Slant has been sold to Forbes. Some of you may have noticed that I’ve stopped posting since news of the acquisition was announced. In a nutshell, I’ve decided to take a break from posting here until I hear from my friends in the management at True/Slant/Forbes regarding my own continued involvement with the company.
I remain grateful for the opportunities that Lewis Dvorkin and Coates Bateman have given me at both AOL and True/Slant, and I’ve enjoyed building up a community here of intelligent, funny, argumentative, and often irreverent readers. Will Paradigms Lost become just another paradise lost? I hope not. But committing to a blog requires the kind of attention and energy that, for this writer anyway, insists on a concrete sense of the possible future, too, if that makes sense.
When I learn this blog’s fate, I’ll be back to post an update.
