If you are familiar with aggregator technology you don't need the EP Alerts, but you're still most welcome to have them.
If you aren't familiar with aggregators, and you wish to keep current on updates to Electric Politics, I encourage you to learn about them and try some out. A news aggregator and/or a podcast reader will check Electric Politics' RSS feeds for you automatically and tell you when new posts become available. A more detailed explanation is in Wikipedia. Aggregators are simple to use, efficient, and will save you loads of time as you browse the web. Several excellent ones are free. Everybody should use them. Trust me — you can thank me later! The feeds you need are linked from buttons at the top of the front page.
I realize, however, that some visitors prefer old fashioned email-list technology. Unfortunately, it's a bit too time-consuming and also somewhat duplicative to send out blog post alerts. Podcasts — the heart of EP — are another story. I send out email notices of each Friday's show shortly after I post it on Friday morning, and I'd be happy to add you to that list.
Just email me at email@example.com and tell me you'd like to be added to the EP Podcast email alerts. Please also include your first and last names.
(Note: previously EP had been using a web-based mailing-list platform, PHP, but I have suspended using it, at least until it becomes more robust and easier to use. It's main advantage was a double-response system for verifying subscribers, but that's not really necessary at this scale and it turns out to be far easier to send customized mass mailings directly from my computer.)
