Warm up your RSS Readers, folks, there’s two new blogs that have started today that you absolutely, positively need to be reading. The first is the DC Local version of the Huffington Post, anchored by DCist founding editor and City Paper veteran Michael Grass who launches the new effort with an elegy for the City of Conversation.
Also debuting today is The Atlantic Cities, which is based in DC, but not entirely of or about DC, but given the subject matter, deeply relevant. Heading up this effort is former DCist editor, and TBD refugee Sommer Mathis, whose first column outlines the new effort as a need to comprehend the new city migration: “To understand cities is to get a handle on how most of us live, work, and play.”
I’m really looking forward to more great voices for the District, and these are certainly among them. Congratulations, Michael and Sommer!
