to all my fine readers. Posting will resume Monday morning.
Here at the Door, we try to do our tiny part.
"I actually got my start as a Substack author by making numerous posts in the Reader Comments of other Substack writers.
"I did this because the places where I could make comments at mainstream media sites were being taken away at an alarming clip."
(At the time of posting Newmark's Door has 26,970 posts and 20,481 comments.)
Happy holidays to all my readers.
Posting will resume January 2.
From Samizdata, "A blog for people with a critically rational individualist perspective":
With the internet rapidly becomes far more stage-managed and tightly controlled than I would have guessed possible almost twenty years ago, we are seeing a second wave of independent sites. And they are driven by the same discontent at the same MSM disconnect from reality that drove the first wave of new media post-9/11. . . .
The weapons have changed a bit but battlefield looks pretty similar and the same war continues.
Ones on the list I can recommend are Marginal Revolution, Managerial Econ, Econlog, Cafe Hayek, and Economics One.
Congratulations to the Powerline folks who celebrated their 18th anniversary of their blog this weekend. Powerline and Instapundit, for their entire runs, are two of the very best blogs--or sites of any type--on the Web.
I hope all my readers have a happy and safe holiday. Posting will resume on Monday, July 8.
