Blog.com column: Baghdad Blogging

The first of my Blog.com columns for Business Standard is here on Rediff (courtesy an arrangement they have with BS). Caution: the para breaks mirror the ones on the BS site, which - and I’ve written about this before, in the context of book reviews - are annoyingly random and have nothing to do with the pieces as they appear in print. Spoke with a senior editor about it today, he said the site is being redesigned and some of these problems will be sorted out soon. Until then, well...

Also, the last bit (starting with the subhead "The person behind the screen") was a separate box in the printed column, but here seems like it’s a continuation of the main piece. Just clarifying.

  3. Very nice column, Jabberwock. I picked up BS by sheer chance yesterday - I usually stay the hell away from business papers - so I was lucky to pick the exact same issue that ran your column! How often will this column come out - every two weeks?

  4. Thanks.
    Samanth: yes, it's a fortnightly (as is the supplement - Ice World - in which it features). Hope I can sustain it though - lots of online reading/trawling required to keep it going.

  6. Riverbend has a book. I saw it in a public library here in the Bay Area. Regardless of one's politics, one would have to admit that a publicly funded library carrying a book like that is the sort of thing that makes America great.
