The idea for www.NewYorkCityBark.com started because the Executive Editor of the New York Times, Bill Keller (@NYTkeller) tweeted “#twittermakesyoustupid Discuss” one evening. Naturally we were not going to let that one go so we wrote a blog post and shopped this all over the internets, the twitter and on NYTimes.com when Keller finally wrote his article.
While my phone has not yet rung (I still have hope) I understand from a very close, very trusted source that all tweeting has been delegated to the family dog. Yet one more sign that Mr. Keller is taking my idea seriously.
Then, I find out last week he is stepping down in September to become a full-time writer for the Times. Hmmmm… just at the time I suggested that they write a column and companion blog on Urban Dogs. Coincidence? I think not.
So today they run a story about the business of dogs (and cats, I guess, but mostly dogs)
Is the New York Times going to the dogs? Time will tell. My phone will be ringing any day now. I can smell it.
