Lost in Cyberspace

In mid-March I was contacted by someone from NPR writing a story about open letters. I’ve been asked to comment on pretty much every type of letter–except that one. I was excited to discuss a different letter genre. I never heard back from the person who contacted me, and I searched on Google to see if the piece had been posted. No luck. Until today! I wasn’t searching for the story but rather trying out a new search engine called DuckDuckGo. It’s a Philly-based site that’s getting a lot of press, so I checked it out. I plugged my name in (who else was I going to search =) and I came across the NPR piece. It’s been out for over a month. Um, Google you’ve been replaced! And here’s the story if you’re interested: An Open Letter … About Open Letters.
