I'd been thinking about joining for some time, but kept procrastinating. Three things pushed me over the finish line:
- Jeff Riggenbach has a new podcast series at Liberty.me. Title: Kranky Notions. It's available to outsiders via Soundcloud and whatnot, but I was thinking about joining Liberty.me to support good content of the sort Jeff creates.
- Last night there was a live event I wanted to "attend" -- Angela Keaton interviewing Lucy Steigerwald (among other great things they do, they're my co-workers at Antiwar.com).
- I was actually getting ready to go over and join when an email from Liberty.me hit my inbox. New site design, etc. ... and new pricing. Five bucks a month. Can't beat that. I'm in.
So far as I can tell, there's not a referral/affiliate program there, so this isn't one of those "try to generate some sales commissions" things (although if I am wrong and there is such a program, I'll be right on it). I just think Jeff Tucker, Mike Reid, et. al have created something really cool and want to send people their way.
