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 firstname.lastname@example.org. The forecast on the ground is sunny with a chance of bears; see you in the content streams.
