Thank You, Good Bye…and hello.

May 28

After two years of articles on places as distant as China to Minnesota to Moldova, and on topics as diverse as law to technology to stories of interesting people, I’ve decided to discontinue this blog.

But this isn’t an end. It’s a beginning.

Over the last couple months, I’ve built a new website under a new name which will continue to feature the same type of content as New Plateaus. (I also transferred all the content from New Plateaus.) This new site is called The Periphery and can be reached at I’m excited about the new site and eager to continue to offer thought-provoking material under this fresh start!

Please subscribe to, or visit, The Periphery to check out the latest pieces. If your newspaper is in the Area Voices network, but doesn’t yet subscribe to it on their website, let them know and I’m sure they’ll be happy to do so.

Thank you for reading New Plateaus and now let me welcome you to the new home of this content: The Periphery. My first piece comes out tomorrow morning about Native American veterans I met over the weekend.
