This Sunday's New York Times Magazine has a piece about new online journalism sites, and features The Faster Times, the site Squawker Jon and I also write for, in the article. Check it out and tell me what you think. Sam Apple, the man behind The Faster Times, is a terrific person, and a real visionary. Jon and I are so happy to write on his site.
Also, The Faster Times is having its first ever membership drive. If you sign up, and pick a particular writer (ahem!), not only will that writer (ahem!) get 70% of the earnings, but you will get some nifty gifts, depending on how much you give. There are magazine subscriptions, tote bags, and such available.
But there is a big bonus gift for those who sign up and designate their donation to go to me - if you join and spend $60 or more to give to this writer, I will write a column on the topic of your choosing. Think of what mayhem a Sox fan could cause with this!
You can also give to Squawker Jon; however, he's offering no personal bonus gifts - yet!
