Just this week that I was wondering what happened to Change This. I hadn't got an update email for a few months, so I visited the website, you know, just to make sure I wasn't missing anything. But nope. Nothing. It appeared that Change This had gone as quickly as it came. Oh well.
But now I know what happened:
"Starting at the end of last year, I entered into a very long negotiation with a major web company about passing the reins (of Change This)on to them. Alas, as often happens with long negotiations with major corporations, it crashed and burned at the very end. One side effect is that ChangeThis has been relatively bereft of new content since February or so.
The good news?
a. next week I hope to be able to tell you about a new team taking over--no money is changing hands, just a team of folks who want to do the hard work to make it fly...
b. we learned a lot. We learned a lot building it and launching it, and we learned a lot in watching what spread (and what didn't spread). And, I think, our millions of readers learned a lot."
Cool. I look forward to the reincarnation of Change This. The manifesto's were alway sharp and snappy, covering a diverse range of ideas and opinions.
