He did very well on Mike Malloy w the Clinton email/server timelines as well.
i was very impressed.
He will be a welcomed addition to our site.
We will not win fighting what we hate but by saving what we love.

Keep Calm and Carry On 👍

I don't know if he's joining the the site yet. I'm going to write a profile about him and his work and sent him a PM at JPR explaining what I wanted to do and and extending an invitation to this site. I haven't heard back yet. 

I'm using this section as an outreach campaign of sorts. It won't always be applicable but when I can I'm going to contact the people that are profiled here and ask them for an update on what they're doing and inviting them to take a look at the site. At the least I'd like for them to know that there's a community that appreciates what they're doing. I know that's true in Paul T.'s case so fingers crossed he'll respond and join us.

Here is a copy of an email I received from Paul on April 15, 2016.
He also attached a PDF of of going his timeline, which I have.
I will pm you his email addy, so you don't have to go thru JPR where he may no longer even be active.

Hi Jennifer,

Here's the file. And below are some instructions I've been sending with it.

Paul


Thanks for the interest. You definitely can help by providing any and feedback that comes to you, from finding typos to overall comments/critique. Here are some specific things:

1) I want to make a sort of "greatest hits" version containing the most compelling information, for people who don't want to read something this big. If you want to mark the entries you think are the most important or rank them somehow, that would be a big help.

2) I want to avoid any accusations of bias, so people can focus on the substance without distraction. If you see ways I can improve that, such as less leading wording, or adding in responses from the Clinton camp, please let me know.

3) That also includes sources. I've tried hard not to include blatantly right wing sources, but it's tough because in some cases they're part of the story (such as lawsuits to release more information) or they're the only ones to report on a certain story. Feel free to say if you think I shouldn't include something due to the source.

4) Tense is a very tricky thing in a timeline like this. My rule is that for events falling into the timeframe of a particular entry, I use the present tense to describe them. But if there's a reference to something in the future or past, I use different tenses. If you see any mistakes about this, please let me know.

5) If there are any news stories or aspects you think I failed to include, please let me know about that too. If you have legal expertise and can shed light on the legal aspect, that would be particularly helpful.

6) My plan in the next few days is to set up a website with the timeline on it and start spreading the word about it. If you could help with that and/or have ideas on how to get the word out, please let me know. I'd like to contact journalists who would be interested in this sort of thing, so if you have that sort of contact info, that would be a great help. I'm also thinking about other ways to repackage the information, such as a FAQ or essay to highlight important points, and I'd love help on that too.

There's all sorts of other things I could use help with, from setting up a website to further research and especially to getting the word out. I believe nothing like this has ever been put together before, and a lot of people would be interested in reading it if they only knew it existed. But getting them to know it exists is a big problem.

Anyway, thanks again and here's the file.

Paul
