The web site Professor Richard Landes discussed in our interview is now open for business.
I highly recommend you head over to The Second Draft and start having a look around. Like any brand new web site, there will be some rough edges, but the meat of the site is all in order. There's a ton of text to sift through, and perhaps most interesting, there's some very eye-opening video to download. The Richard Landes, Nidra Poller produced film "Pallywood" is available for download, and you can watch excerpts and other snips of video with or without overdubbed narration so you can form your own sense of things.
I had seen excerpts of this film at a presentation a year ago, and it's very exciting to know that a mass audience is now also going to get a look.
If The Second Draft doesn't start getting its bandwidth hammered by people downloading video and reading analysis it would be a real shame indeed. Some people are impervious to proof...or the obvious...but for most people who delve into this site, things will never be the same...at least we can hope. Pass the word.
Update: Daniel in Brookline is impressed. Honest Reporting's Backspin Blog reacts, as does Lynn B. Alan Forrester says, "Go now." I couldn't agree more. Mick calls it "Faking it" and culls an illuminating quote. Pieter also links the site and says thanks for the sneak peak. You're most welcome! (Yes, bloggers who accepted my invitation to link the original interview -- unless I missed their post -- were rewarded with an early peak of the Second Draft site as a thank-you.)
