From Joe Carter

“I have a favor to ask.
I’m the managing editor of Culture11 (, a new online magazine/social network that was started by Bill Bennett, David Kuo, Steve Forbes, et al. Today is our first day and rather than making a lot of noise using traditional media, we’ve decided to announce our launch by reaching out to our friends.

Our goal for the site is to build a community around irresistibly interesting perspectives on life in America. From pop culture to politics, from faith to family, you’ll find original and entertaining stories here from some of the country’s most dynamic voices. (Its a lot cooler than that description makes it sound.)

I hope you’ll take a few moments to explore the site, perhaps add a diary entry, start a group, or read a few of the articles. We’re still in the beta stage and working out a few bugs so we could use your input. We also need to build buzz on the internet and throughout the blogophere, so I hope you’ll mention us on your blog or forward this email to some friends.

With your help, we can make Culture11 something truly extraordinary - an online destination that has the editorial excellence of a great magazine, the thrill of a terrific conversation, and the comfort of a supportive community all rolled into one.

I’m always glad to help a friend, although I must tell you that if you want to sign up from outside the US, you’ll have to lie about where you live as a US state and zipcode are required.

Thanks, Richard. I didn’t realize our friends outside the US couldn’t access the site. I’ll see if I can’t fix that. If anyone is interested in visiting it, they can use the zip code 20001.

You can access the site OK, Joe. But to register you have to give a US state and zipcode. A “not US” option on the state list would solve the problem I think.
