One of my favorite bloggers, Armed Liberal, has come out. Armed revealed to Dan Gillmor in this piece that his real name is Marc Danziger. He is working on Spirit of America, and there are big plans in store.
Marc and I discussed the “coming out” issue a week or so ago. I had been thinking about making my name public, and called Marc for his thoughts. He told me that he was wrestling with the same issues himself, due to his Spirit of America commitment. He encouraged me to do it, and I did.
It’s kind of liberating not worrying about anonymity anymore, as Marc will discover.
In any event, the big picture is that Marc’s promises of BIG things to come with Spirit of America is not just talk. I discussed it with him a couple of weeks ago, and the word BIG in all capital letters is indeed appropriate. E-mail Armed, er, Marc at “firstname.lastname@example.org” and see how you can get involved.
