Welcome to NSFWCORP, David Sirota

A quick piece of housekeeping: I'm really pleased to welcome David Sirota to NSFWCORP's roster of contributors.

David will be writing regularly for the digital edition, and almost certainly for print too (don't worry, Sirota fans, he'll still be writing for other places too. Until I convince him to stop.) His first piece publishes later this week.

Rather than second guess him, I asked David to explain why he said yes when I asked him to join NSFWCORP...

"There are a lot of reasons to be despondent about the media landscape these days, not the least of which is the dwindling respect for the notions of adversarial reporting. Yet, at a time when so many are writing maudlin obituaries for journalism, a few innovative outlets are showing that it may be time to instead write some happy birth notices. One of them is NSFWCORP, a magazine whose entire business model seems designed to let journalists be what they should be: shit disturbers. I'm psyched that the magazine has asked me to contribute - and look forward to a place where I can continue my efforts to combat stupidity, challenge dumb assumptions, and generally disturb shit."

So there you go. Welcome, David!
