An opportunity to interview Jim Cardle, founder of TexasInsider.org was presented to me and I took it. TexasInsider.org is a web site devoted to gathering and distributing information for Texas voters and elected officials, too.
In 2003, Cardle noticed a need for such a web site. Based in Austin, Cardle has his ear to the ground on all things political. With past experience working in think tanks in Washington, D.C. as well as in Texas he knows the importance of distributing information in a timely fashion.
In the next few days, the web site will display an updated look. This will be the fifth version of the web page, always keeping pace with the political atmosphere. A heavy concentration is being placed on connecting with readers through social media networking. Twitter, Flkr, Facebook and YouTube are all being added to the site.
Current readership is at 50,000 subscribers and readers. The site shares think tank papers, monitors business journals and distributes stories of state and local legislation. There are articles from around the world, the country and the state of Texas.
As the new look of the site is launched, stop by and check it out.
