Well, the word is on the street over at Not for Nothin’: Ian Donnis reports that Pat Crowley will be succeeding Matt Jerzyk as owner of the RI Future Blog.
Interestingly, Pat and I had talked about trying to collaboratively buy the blog along with a potential group of board members, but I don’t think either of us were confident this could work. Ultimately, I think it would be difficult to co-run a blog. A good blog needs one person at the front, dedicating a good portion of his/her life to the task. The logistics of trying to share that leadership would probably be more challenging than doing it yourself, particularly for a blog the size of RI Future.
But I will be interested to see who gets invited to be on the Board of the corporation or limited partnership that the organization becomes. I wish Pat well in this endeavor and hope the RI Future blog continues to grow in its ability to connect people to the issues that are impacting our lives.
