First of all, apologies to everybody for being so quiet — I was sick for the last couple of weeks. I’m feeling better now but am overwhelmed by other stuff so don’t expect to hear a lot from me.
Which is a pretty natural transition to the topic of this post. Now’s a great time to transition the blog from being Jon-centric to being a group effort. So we’re looking for bloggers — you, hopefully. In particular:
- volunteers to do the “dailyish updates”. it’s pretty straightforward: check the blog for recent posts, look at the Google group and discussion board on the wiki to see if there are any hot topics, and check the news.
- a weekly legal roundup, summarizing what’s happening and linking out to other analyses. You don’t need to be a lawyer to help here, but you have to be comfortable with the level of detail that’s typically discussed by emptywheel, Threat Level, or Glenn Greenwald.
- guest posts in the “what does it mean to get FISA right series”. See Jim Burrows’ first post and my comment for more.
Other topics are welcome too…
If you’d like to help out, please reply in a comment!
PS: Experienced bloggers are welcome, of course, but if you’re new to blogging, this is a great chance to learn.
