How to keep up with your favorite True/Slant writer

Boy, word sure gets around fast.

Some True/Slant writers will become contributors at Forbes. Others will not. Most all will do other things online.

If you’d like an easy guide to what your favorite T/S contributor will be doing next, ‘The Goodbye Channel’ is the place to go.

    The Goodbye Channel is totally the best. So interesting to read everyone’s take on the site. Thanks!

    I didn’t always agree with you. In fact, I usually took you to task, but that was part of the value that TS provided readers: the opportunity to “shape” the conversation.

    I still think TS was / is a worthy experiment. As Neal Ungerleider says, “The idea of matching experienced writers with a guaranteed network of advertisers and readers and a salary is a good one.”

    Good Luck On The Next One!

    Mr. Roston,

    When T/S starts up again as wholly owned subsidiary of Forbes, will our accounts roll over or will we need to create new ones? In particular, will our older posting still be available to us?

    About Me

    I'm waiting for the day when I can get the news directly into my brain. Until then, I'll be lit up by the electric glow of screens, chasing the latest breaking like the hopeless news junkie I am. Ever since the Encyclopaedia Britannica tried to launch a web portal ten years ago, I've seen many ends of the online news spectrum, from my time as a political news reporter for both RawStory.com and the Huffington Post to the better part of a year I spent running the late New York Sun's website. There have been a lot of other stops in between. Now I am your homepage editorial overlord. But I haven't let it go to my head. Yet.
