a legend returns

Legendary blogger Matthew Ingram - who retired about five or six years ago - is  back in the game!

You can imagine my surprise and delight on learning this today.

Matt already has a bunch of posts up at the new Woebot:

This one explores his reasons for dropping out, what propelled him in the first place, and the mysterious, not-quite-accessible-to-consciousness impulse that has brought him back.  (And who can say what motivates any of us to do what we do, really? )

This latest one concerns a recent book about Rough Trade and contains some interesting, potentially feather-ruffling thoughts about the role of cultural entrepreneurs - and "job-creators" generally.

It's good to have you back, man.
