I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been working furiously to set up a couple of new features on this site that I think you’re going to love.

First, Café San Diego launches today. Check it out.

Apparently, more people than just Scott Peters actually enjoyed it when I went on vacation a few weeks ago and allowed some of the areas most interesting political people step in and host this blog. It was really a success.

We decided that whatever we did while I was gone shouldn’t end when I got back. So, here’s Café San Diego. Each day we’ll have a different host for the café – some people will host it regularly. Today’s host is political consultant and uber-insider Tom Shepard, who is actually referencing me in his first post. I might have to go ahead and reference him back if I can stop web-monkeying for a while.

That’s not all. Some of you may have noticed that our star real estate columnist Rich Toscano hasn’t been doing much lately. That’s because he and I have been busy meeting and planning the launch of The Nerd’s Eye View. He’s still going to do the same great analysis he did before but he now has a different format: short posts, easy-on-the-attention-span reading.

Rich aptly describes the content in his intro:

Topics will include housing and economic matters as they pertain to us San Diegans, and probably some other things, as well. To some degree we intend to figure it out as we go along.

As the blog title might indicate, the idea is to look beyond the hype and homilies and to focus on facts, data, and rational discourse. You know, nerd stuff. Let us know what you think.

So, take a look. Careful, though, you’ll get hooked.
