A quiet week on the blog

But a big week for Salon: We add Berkeley Breathed's "Opus," launch Farhad Manjoo's "Machinist" and accept our first Webby award since 2002.

I'm in New York this week for the Webby Awards, and the attendant round of meetings as well as trying to spend time with our great New York staff is likely to mean that I won't blog as much as usual. My travel adventures already kept me from writing to let you know about two great new Salon features before they launched: Berkeley Breathed's "Opus" and Farhad Manjoo's new technology column and blog, "Machinist." Now that they've debuted, you can tell us what you think in the comments section here. And I'll of course blog after the Webby Awards Tuesday night (or, more realistically, Wednesday morning).

My favorite random Salon fact today: Entertainment Weekly previewed David Duchovny's new series "Californication" and revealed that his character is a successful but blocked novelist trying to "get back on track -- how else? -- by blogging for a Salon-type website." Maybe I can get Duchovny to guest-blog for me when I'm busy doing the rest of my job.
