Awl Polished

Just because it doesn’t look shiny doesn’t mean it isn’t BRILLIANT.

Good afternoon, or good evening, whatever it is! Today is The Awl’s first day on Medium, a cool platform for publishers. This will look familiar to readers of The Billfold, which moved over to Medium late last year. Porting all eight thousand posts about bears took a bit of time and lots of coding. Objects in the archive may have shifted during our flight, so please use caution when opening links — there are bound to be some posts, both old and new, with slightly mangled formatting. If you see anything of the sort, feel free to let us know at The forecast on the ground is sunny with a chance of bears; see you in the content streams.
