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 [...]

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 [...]

This is my last post for True/Slant. The site has been acquired by Forbes Media and is in the process of ramping down; it will stop publishing new content on August 1, although archived blogs will remain accessible for a while. Some of the content that has found a home [...]

'Top Secret America' dismissed as a 'study'

I worried aloud after first reading 'Top Secret America' that the series from the Washington Post's Dana Priest and William Arkin lacked a sufficient 'villain' to make it a lasting entry into the grand history of capital-J journalism. I also argued that reading it felt like reading a slightly more [...]

WikiLeaks: Sex and the City Edition - Another Failed US Foray into the Middle East

A trove of more than 90 thousand documents released by the self-proclaimed whistle-blower WikiLeaks offers a grim picture of the latest US foray into the Middle East - one that senior White House officials knew would likely end in failure:  Sex and the City 2. The documents — some 92,000 [...]

Read My Book! Watch My Video! Authors Turn YouTube Promoters, Ready Or Not

So much for the garret. As authors today now know, or quickly learn, whether you can produce a publishable manuscript is only one piece of the puzzle. How are you on YouTube? From The New York Times:
“But people who spend their whole lives writing and people who are good [...]
