After several years of carping about lack of money, Slugger finds itself the beneficiary of Guardian Unlimited’s first serious attempt to jump into the warm, choppy waters of Web 2.0. That banner ad on the side bar will bring Slugger in its first chunk of serious ad revenue – so don’t be afraid to use it all day and everyday as an easy jump to some great raw material and links to UK and International politics. Glenn Patterson has his second piece up there now and I should have something on the Bigot row myself as soon as their editors get round to clearing the backlog of pending blog pieces. Lot’s of good stuff, from the New Statesman, the American Spectator, Jeff Jarvis, and loads of others. Try this piece from David Clark for a read in on anti Semitism and the intellectual debate.
Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
