2013 in review

Here’s the WordPress.com 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,700 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Obviously, Edward Snowden’s NSA revelations of the summer drove our activities and those drove your readership.  We’re particularly proud of the early role MCCRC played in catalyzing resistance on the ground in the DC area, with a June press conference/rally against NSA surveillance that brought together a broad group of activists including some from the newly forming “Restore The Fourth” coalition; we like to think the larger rallies in July and October were in part a result of our June efforts (together with those of many others).

We’ll be making recommendations about what to do next in the weeks ahead.   Thanks for reading this blog, and thanks for being a part of our efforts!
