A new forum at Forbes

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
As I hinted in a semi-final post at True/Slant, this forum has found a new home, under a new name and with a new mission, at Forbes. The assignment has changed, appropriate to the developing realities of the politics and economics of carbon. I'll be pursuing green technology, its pioneers and [...]

Out Of Time

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
My time here has come to an end. Actually, it did so two days ago, but I didn't have the time at the moment to put up a proper farewell post. I wanted to say something fitting, not rush out a jumble of words in the spaces between fleeting moments [...]

In response to Adding to goodbye porn: my first ‘list’ post on TrueSlant’s last day
  • You are sadly correct about the word "porn"; I used it once, as a metaphor, and it's at 5,000+ hits and climbing every single day. I still think you win the vote for most exotic/unlikely location.read » T/S CAITLIN KELLY

So long to the life we used to live

image thumbnail - see full story for attributionsVideo
My old man taught me to say "so long" whenever we parted because he contended "goodbye" should be reserved for permanent occasions, like the one Emily Dickinson refers to here:
Good-by to the life I used to live, And the world I used to know; And kiss the hills for me, [...]

Away I go, 900+ posts later... Whatever will I do with all this newfound empty time? I started blogging here July 1, 2009, quite literally shaking with fear. Who on earth would want to listen? But, bless y'all, you did. I found 5,000 visitors by November and 10,000 every month after that; May [...]

One door closes

I was originally aiming for a "Sopranos"-style ending at T/S rather than going with the typical farewell post. Journey on the jukebox. Onion rings. Ominous stalkers. Suddenly, a black screen! But what the heck. I've blogged in a variety of forums, and True/Slant was special in its combination of flexibility [...]

Journalism 101: Would You Publish This Photo?

'The Pierced Boy,' click to enlarge. (Photo: San Jose Mercury News) With all of True/Slant saying farewell, it feels lonely posting anything at all today. But before I sign off, there's one last thing I'd like to share, a photograph I stumbled across several months back while paging through one [...]

Nope, Not Yet, Dammit

I will not yet say goodbye. Sentimental old fool, yes. Also -- technophobic. Have to sit down and figure out how to migrate Broadside somewhere else; one T/Ser says "easy" another said, not. Don't have time today, maybe late tonight. Definitely tomorrow because the T/S curtain goes down and who knows [...]

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.

Thank you

When you launch a news start-up on the Internet, there's two ways you can go: harness your powers of ego projection and hope your product catches up with it; or get down to work and start keeping up with and occasionally defining the news cycle. True/Slant chose the latter path. In April [...]
