Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

Correction: I'm so happy to be here

Referring to my last post about the Orlando Sentinel's first article about Urban ReThink since last March when the bookstore closed: I am really happy about it.

In wanting to post about it, I gave the piece favorable mention in several places. On this blog, however, I tended to focus on certain parts of the article, and it must have seemed pretty ungrateful and irresponsible.

After taking some time to let it sink in, and realizing how many comments and discussions this has spawned, I have to say I'm so happy this happened, and that it happened this week.

Nothing in the article was untrue, or misleading, and I personally believe that we wouldn't be anywhere without Craig and the old bookstore - this article establishes that for the readers of the Sentinel. Kudos. I've been meaning to post this since Sunday, and time has been slipping into the future.

I've got a lot of good things to say about our local traditional media. Collectively and individually, they're doing some great stuff. I mean it.

I have taken this week to introduce myself to Erin Sullivan, the new(ish) Editor of the Orlando Weekly. I heard a little bit about her from a friend, and she has been writing about events at Urban ReThink too. I have to say she is really doing her job in the right spirit.

I'm also happy that a publication like the Orlando Business Journal is spending some energy blogging, and trying to engage readers online.

I stand behind what I write here on my personal space - if you walk in my front door, be prepared to hear what I have to say. At the same time, I forgot to say two of the most important words in the English language on Friday: "Thank You".
