Public opinion of TriMet's decisions have been pretty mixed, mostly because TriMet's decisions are so convoluted that they can be a real challenge to understand. Let's look deeper and bigger.
One more thing, as Mr. Jobs used to say...I'm thinking about writing a piece in Dissent about Portland's Pirate Media...and (without outing you) I'd like to have your thoughts on using Substack and where media is going...
Plus: I would love to cross-publish your stuff (along with a plug to your 'stack)--for all I know you have a jillion subs, but I think our Dissenters would really be interested in your work. We've given Kevin Dahlgren a little push into the Substack whirl as well.
Great reporting and thinking. But why hide behind "Independent writer in Portland?"
When Pam Fitzsimmons and I started the 'stsck, PortlandDissent (essential reading!!!), we decided that we would own what we had to say, knowing it would be anathema to the progressives. The ky didn't fall.
