Marc Ambinder Blogging for The Week

Marc Ambinder has joined The Week as an editor-at-large and has launched his very own blog. Topics covered on “The Compass,” according to Ambinder, will be varied. He says he’ll write about politics, technology, culture, and more.

Smartly though, Ambinder says “I am not going to blog about everything. And I am going to stick to the rule I made for myself awhile ago: If I don’t think I have something interesting to say, or something valuable to add, I am not going to force anything.”

“I have a bunch of irons in the fire, and I anticipate that these experiences will help me look at the world with different lenses,” explains Ambinder.
