i never quite did manage to write for the tribune, even tho i'd like to... i feel far more comfy feeding rants to my blog than the tribune. and i don't even know what they want the staffers to write anyway... nice write-up on the vaga and muninn, btw. very informative.
Thanks! The writers for the tribune have a fair amount of latitude as to what they can write and there is a list of items that the editors would really really like to pick from. I tend to stick to technical guides and reviews as that is my strength. Others do the politics and news, opinions, market research, etc. And you are not stuck to one style ever.
