Moving to

The Data Port has been resident here on Blogspot for a good long time. Sometimes it's been very active and sometimes it's just passively occupied this site, too exhausted by the little disturbances of politics to offer much in the way of comment.

As some readers may already have discovered I've switched platforms to WordPress and accepted an invitation from to move over there to take part in building the Citizen's web-only presence. Will it work? Who knows? But I think, given the rapidly changing face of American journalism, it's worth taking a shot. 

You may visit the Data Port directly here: but I would urge you to explore the posts of my fellow bloggers...they'll surprise you.

The "beta" site is not, according to Editor Mark Evans, a beta in the true sense but only a kind of holding position while extensive redesigning goes on. A good thing, too, since the present site is uglier than a junkyard dog. But, hey, it's my dog now, so don't kick it around.

Lefty Blogs...RIP?

I notice that there have been no updates to Lefty Blogs since Friday. Has the site died?

Coming Changes

The winds of change will be blowing through The Data Port. Posts may be a bit erratic and there surely will be a few technical glitches as TDP moves over to the Wordpress platform. More later.
