Change

By Ta-Nehisi Coates

I assume you guys will want to talk about this. Go for it. I'll try to answer any questions I can, as I can. For my part, the site looks a lot smoother. I think we'll all have to do some work to keep the community as cohesive as its been in the past. But I think the "culture" channel will also allow a smoother integration of many of the folks that were here last week. Definitely Alyssa, whose been writing here for awhile. Hopefully Neil, Dwayne and Evan also. (Adam has a gig.)

All in all, I'm a fan. But I'm mixed on the picture. I don't like have my mug slapped on top of this thing. I'd rather do the Rakim thing, "Incognito and taking it easy..."
