Just four days ago I got an email from Scott Karp suggesting that his Web startup might have some tools that could make covering an election interesting — really interesting.More emails … phone calls … more emails … phone calls. The result: An idea to let some savvy political followers (except me) find links to the best stories out there and make a list of them that lets readers get the benefit of their foraging and expertise.
Who the hell is Scott Karp? Folio: mag tagged him as one of the 40 most influential people in publishing in 2007. He left his day job as director of digital strategy for the publisher of The Atlantic magazine last year to devote his full energies (and then some) to a startup called Publish2.com.
I’m honored to be in. Thanks to those who have faith in me.
Hoping I do well.
