From Editor Keith Gessen, August 25, 2004 (They apparently didn't hate blogs then.)
We sent you an n+1 about a month ago, and I just wanted to make sure you received it. You're not under any obligation to write about us, of course, except... well, except that you are. Of course. No such thing as a free n+1. I look forward to it.
* The first of an irregular featurette, charting the evolution of n+1's stance toward litblogs.
