Blake beat me to the punch (and I wasn't actually going to propose a news story), but for both of you who read this:
Walt at Random is now live, with two (count them! 2) posts and a surprising number of early comments.
The date was deliberately chosen to match the importance of the new weblog--but rest assured, W.a.R. will still be there on April 2.
Here's what I do know about editorial policy: Walt at Random will not in any way weaken Cites & Insights.
What I don't know:
- Whether or how the two will complement one another, or how/whether W.a.R. will complement "disContent" in EContent or "PC Monitor" in Online or...
- How often I'll post, or what the real topical range will be, or whether this will be one of the majority of new weblogs that fades away...
- Whether or how often I'll rotate names in and out of the sidebar links. For now, I'm deliberately only including a handful of names, and initially avoiding the "A list" of library bloggers.
- Whether I'll achieve my goal of reaching the library "C list" level, which I place at 20+ Bloglines subscriptions. Or maybe even the "B list" (100+)...
I suspect W.a.R. will largely supplant this journal, but perhaps not entirely. We shall see.
