Former DCist.com unpaid contributor, current paid editor of Huffington Post’s Eat the Press - the man with the best name for a blogger ever – Jason Linkins has written a post titled “How The Huffington Post Works (In Case You Were Wondering).”
This is how it all works. Yes, The Huffington Post is like a public square, for conversation. But that’s been built and maintained by people who work at it every single day, at all hours. We’re glad to have created that space, and we’re overjoyed that it gets filled every day, and we’re happy to promote the writing of others. But the building and the maintaining and the promoting of that space for people to play — that’s takes daily work, and that’s a big part of what I’m paid to do.
