Citizen Orange: February 2008 Archives

As this blog continues to evolve, and the wonderful writing of yave begnet, changeseeker, janna, and lividsnails graces pages of Citizen Orange, I wonder if there's still a place to give personal updates about myself.  I hesitate because I really want people that I think are better and more knowledgeable writers than myself, to start taking ownership of this page, while I work to give them more visibility.  Which reminds me, I really have to get my photoshop and web development skills in order so I can change the "about kyle" sections of this blog so that they read, "about the authors".

Still, I thought people would be interested in some of the other things that I've been up to, while I'm not typing up a storm here.  
No disrespect to Man Eegee over at Latino Politico (with a brand spanking new domain name!), but I thought I'd up and start posting some pro-migrant round-ups of my own.  This sort of link fest is a vital part of fostering a pro-migrant community online.  Links are the vehicles through which an online community is created.  Without them we are just disconnected web pages shouting into the darkness.

Introducing lividsnails

Many apologies for this introduction being so long in coming!  When Kyle asked if I wanted to write for Citizen Orange I had just moved to Washington DC to start a new job with a farm labor rights organization.  I'd literally been in town only a few weeks and I was up to my eyeballs in the work of learning a new career and a new city.  (Honestly, I've never worked so hard in my life, not even when I was in grad school!  I can't explain how I do it other than to admit that my favorite beverage at the local coffee shop is the "depth charge" which is super charged coffee with a shot of espresso!)
