I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Meanwhile in the forest / In a parliament of trees, The ink will crack and dry all up, But the compass will swing anyways. And we don't need mathematics / And we don't need submarines

Slate Magazine is changing hands

According to this article on Slate the publication is changing hands. Bill Gates is out of the content business.

I like Slate. I think that while Salon Magazine grew by appealing to our eternal interest in all things sexual, Slate tried to stay above the fray (not coincidentally the name of its discussion forums.)

Congratulations to the new owners, and I only hope that the content remains publicly available. I’m sure the new owners — the Washington Post — have a plan to start charging for content, I still firmly believe that there’s a viable audience for free news on the web. We just have to get the advertising mix right.
