So, as readers have noticed, I don’t blog here nearly as often as I once did; daily journalism is time consuming. But I got my start as a writer blogging, and in a lot of ways that’s probably still my comparative advantage. So I’m happy to announce that, starting today, I’ll be blogging about the intersection of technology, politics, and public policy at Ars Technica‘s new Law & Disorder blog. You can read my inaugural post to get a sense of what it’s all about. Pure politics, philosophy, unsolicited opinions on music, and other assorted trivia will still be available here, but if you want to know what I think about anything with a tech angle—including privacy and surveillance issues—that’s the place to look. I may occasionally throw links to posts there up here if I have a truly blinding epiphany, but you should probably stick L&D in your feed if you find that sort of thing interesting.
Also, if you’re going to be following any of the myriad election livebloggers, I’ll be updating regularly starting around 7 or 8. So yeah, tell your friends! Law & Disorder! It’s the hep new thing!
