The Future is Now!

Arianna Huffington has a new project which involves a blog with contributor from all over. It's called the Huffington Post, and so far it looks pretty good. You might check out this post from writer and director David Mame, on the trust required for information to flow. Or this post from historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. on President Bush's tenuous grasp of what happened at Yalta. Or you might check out this post by Eric Liu on the Mad Libs approach to political discourse, and what it means for the Democratic Party.

I'm enthusiastic about this site - but worry a little bit about the burnout factor. With so many big names contributing, how long are they going to stick around? Anyway we'll just have to see what happens.
