Okay...he never really left, but for those of us who first discovered Bill Whittle through his essays on his blog, Eject! Eject! Eject!, his later work never seemed quite as personal or intimate. Not saying he isn't doing great stuff at PJTV with his Afterburner videos, or Declaration Entertainment with his Firewall videos, but there was something unique about his voice in those early essays.
So the great news, kittens, is that Mr. Whittle is back at his blog...complete with ALL the early essays he wrote. If you didn't purchase his book, "Silent America", which was a compilation of these writings (which I did and you should have), now you have the inordinate pleasure of reading them....either for the first time or to rediscover them...and I am jealous. I have Tribes memorized, I think.
YIPPEE!!! Welcome back, Mr. Whittle.
