Congratulations to Matt Yglesias http://www.matthewyglesias.com/archives/2007/04/everlarger_media_matt/
It's also worth remembering that the last merit promotion of this sort was when Blake Hounshell moved from American Footprints to become web editor of Foreign Policy magazine. This sort of thing is a great trend.
Congratulations to you, Matt. And congratulations to TAM, too.
(aside: IMHO TAM would be well-served by following the Washington Monthly/Kevin Drum model and having Matt's blogging be the primary content on their front page site).

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
