As some readers may already have discovered I've switched platforms to WordPress and accepted an invitation from TucsonCitizen.com 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: http://tucsoncitizen.com/dataport/ 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.
