The Future of This Website

From a comment posted by a visitor:

“In my experience, [the] goodspeed update has provided ample opportunity for conservatives to post and Rob has also posted links to Michigan Review articles and the like, but the greatest contribution is the creation of a public space and resource for progressive students (and faculty). Some on campus make the absurd argument that MSA should not be engaged in “controversial” issues, while we live in a city where the leaders are eager for students to remain effectively disfranchised. In my view the most important mission of the goodspeed update has not simply been campus-oriented, but also its position that students should be full citizens in this town and in communities beyond. I hope that a successor maintains this agenda.”

If you are interested in being a member of an editorial collaborative which would carry on this website, eventually under a new name, please send me a short email. In case you missed it, you can read here about my plans for the future. I’ve recieved a few inquiries, but I thought that I should ask again:

“The qualifications are quite simple: you are a freshman or sophomore at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, consider yourself politically progressive, and you have the time and desire to start a blog. To apply, send me a one-page letter of interest … at rob at”
