Hull Selling RIF to Shadowy Board of Directors!
Brian Hull (h/t Ian Donnis), current proprietor of RI Future is putting the old girl up on the block again. This will be the 3rd ownership change for our erstwhile Progessive counterparts in as many years. Hull has been accepted into the Masters in Public Policy degree program at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and the workload will be too much to both manage RIF and get the sheepskin. (I do believe we have a contributor here at AR who can relate).
However, Hull still intends to be part of the future of RI Future as a member of a new “Board of Directors” that will take ownership of the site with the intention of turning it into a non-profit. (Because–apparently–we need another progressive non-profit!). So, the blog founded by community activists will be run by a corporatist-like Board of Directors comprised of as-yet unknown individuals (with the exception of Brian). Meanwhile, this blog–oft-accused of being in corporate pockets like Big Radio, etc.–will continue to be run by volunteers. Ahhh, the Alanis Morrissette-like irony!
In all seriousness, best of luck to Brian in his studies. See you in the interwebs.
