From the day I started this adventure ten years ago this summer, the Daily Dish has evolved. It evolved from a late night opinion dump, posted at 2 am to an ongoing blogathon, day in day out. It went from white print on navy background to what we have today. It once had no photos and no videos. Now we have window views and mental health breaks every day. From an independent site, we retained total editorial freedom first at Time and now at the Atlantic. And at the Atlantic, I was able to hire interns to add extra eyes and ears as the web exploded in size and scope and variety. Interns in turn helped increase reader-generated content so that we have the stream of collective consciousness of today's latest iteration of the Dish - in which I operate as a kind of composer/disk-jockey for the music that we play.

I'm more than psyched therefore to announce the latest evolution: in addition to Chris and Patrick, two other former interns are returning to add more beef and depth and color to the Dish. Zoe Pollock - coming from the NewsHour - will both be helping me organize this contraption that grew up around me, as well as under-blogging. Conor Friedersdorf, no stranger to Dish readers, will be under-blogging with his usual range of interests and keen eye, but also focusing on both the degeneracy of the conservative movement, and the green shoots we are beginning to see of a saner, more imaginative, more traditionally conservative policy revival.

We've added a new masthead to acknowledge these changes. They'll also, with any luck, relieve some of the pressure on yours truly to keep this ideas and news machine humming day in day out, while getting some time for more expansive reading, thinking and rest. Thanks to the Atlantic for finding the funds for these reinforcements. We hope the range and diversity and depth of the work we do will keep improving.
