Gone fishin’

It’s summertime, and despite the occasional rainstorm — which left the Lab’s office flooded earlier this month and still a little stinky — the bright sun calls. We’re going to take a mid-summer break from posting and tweeting. We’ll be back before the end of the month, with big plans for the fall. Until then, we’ll be sipping something cold outdoors and going hours without thinking the words “paywall” or “business model.”

Joshua Benton is the senior writer and former director of Nieman Lab. You can reach him via email (joshua_benton@harvard.edu) or Twitter DM (@jbenton).

“We feel like we really owe it to our readers to be honest about the stakes and to let them know that we truly cannot do this work without them.”
