  1. Hey, Mack, thanks for the mention! Will the blog last?  If we get another majority monolith and we all go back to sleep for four years, maybe not.  But if we get a Wild Rose majority — versus an entrenched, PC-friendly civil service — or better yet, an honest-to-God minority with some experienced Libs and NDP folks back in their seats, then Alberta’s in for a hayride, and that’ll be a blast.

      1. Sure, that sounds reasonable. So what? Seems like they could use whatever minimal revenue they get from it, it doesn’t take away time or resources from actual journalism, and they haven’t resorted to a steady diet of “cute”-cams over actual journalism. So what’s the harm?

  2. Haha, not a fan of the goosecam eh? I would also argue the Peahen is Edmonton’s most famous bird.

    Thanks for the shout-out on the edmontonian’s AMPIA nomination. It’s great to see more indie, small, web organizations getting nominations like this. The Huffington Post’s Pulitzer should be one of the last barriers to the old vs. new media debate. Good content should be rewarded and enjoyed regardless of how much money or legacy is behind it.
