What are we doing here?

American Observed is an ongoing conversation with ourselves here at the American Observer and with our loyal and dear readers. The American Observer is a work-in-progress, constantly updated and changing – one big learning moment. Observed will try to take advantage of that learning moment and use it to its fullest potential.

At times, hopefully not many, Observed will be the Ombudsman or reader’s representative, correcting the Observer when it has wronged.

More often, Observed will be a channel for constructive criticism and brainstorming – how can we make this better and why should we make this better?

For now, content will be cross-posted here and on the Observer site proper on the “blog19” until the campaign to replace Drupal with WordPress succeeds.
