This article on H Stree
t (with neighborhood boundarie
s) is part of a new venture between the Washington Post and Urban Turf that will cover local real estate. I think the article is good overall, but there are a couple of errors in the section where I was interviewed. I already talked to the author and he has promised to get them fixed. To be fair, the interview was over the phone, and there was background noise. Here they are the mistakes and corrections so they don't bug me:
1. I moved here in 2001, not 2003. The article makes it sound like I moved to a neighborhood and pretty much started blogging about it immediately...NOT TRUE.
And yes, I am from Oklahoma. This means that every reporter from now until dooms day will introduce me by calling me an Oklahoma native. True, but I haven't lived there in 13 years guys. Not that there's anything wrong with Oklahoma. I just think this is an odd tick that reporters seem to have. It's kind of like the way the Post is constantly using the very "snarl" constantly to talk about traffic.
2. That Craiglist thing? Happened back in 2004, so, not really so "recent" actually. This actually makes more sense if you realize it's a story from 5 years ago.
