This week on kottke.org: Joel Turnipseed

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 29, 2007

In the interest of growing the site beyond its current boundaries (i.e. me having to be seated in front of a computer 24/7/365), I’m trying something new on kottke.org. Starting tomorrow and continuing through next Tuesday, Joel Turnipseed will be editing the site. Joel is a writer living in Minneapolis, has previously run a software company, and is the author of Baghdad Express, a memoir of his experience as a US Marine in the first Gulf War. His writing has appeared in Granta, GQ, and The New York Times. For the week, Joel will be posting links, interviews, and entries loosely organized around a theme; he’ll introduce himself and explain exactly what’s going tomorrow. I’m looking forward to seeing what he comes up with.

(And yeah, this is the result of my help wanted post from earlier in the month.)
