BabyBarista described as ‘enormously popular’ at Vanity Fair Online and The Huffington Post

Thanks to journalist and author Michael Wolff for his recent article which has been published at Vanity Fair Online, The Huffington Post and Newser. In the context of The Times’ paywall he said: “Tim Kevan, the author of the Times’ enormously popular legal blog—BabyBarista—recently announced he was leaving his Murdoch home (where he’s gotten two book deals from his blog) and setting up his own site because he doesn’t want to be in the “exclusive preserve of a limited few subscribers.” In other words, he wants an audience.”

My move from The Times and my comments about the paywall have been covered all over the world and the following are links to over seventy such sites: The Guardian, BloomsbergNew Statesman, Media Week, The Bar CouncilThe New Lawyer, American Bar Association JournalEstates GazetteProf George BrockCharon QCGeeklawyer, PhanceeBusiness InsiderInfamy or PraiseEditors Weblog, Tech Dirtle monde, LawDentFamily Lore, Android’s Reminiscences, Delia Venables, f/k/a, Jobsworth, Binary Law, slaw, Broadcast Journalism, The, Criminal Law and Evidence, Memex 1.1Practice Source, Felix Salmon at Reuters, Media Gazer, White Rabbit, Trainee Lawyer, Exile On Moan Street, Malice in Wonderland, The Latest on PPC, Media BistroLegal NewsMartin Stabe, CyclothymicMusings, You Get The Info, Cyber CulturalistAlexandre Gamela, Whyte Wolf, It’s Digital PR News, J Source, A-Z of Global Warming Of Interest to Lawyers, Legal SleazeCisionCampaign, DMAPaid ContentPoblish, Silo BreakerMedie Varlden (Swedish)De Jaap (Dutch)Ger Timmer (Dutch)Media Facts (Dutch), I Love Media (Dutch), Media Ned (Dutch), ABC Spain (Spanish)233 Grados (Spanish)Lola Como Mola (Spanish), The Protocol Droid (Spanish)LaInformacion (Spanish)FayerWayer (Spanish), Direnet (Spanish), El Diario Digital (Spanish) Universidad de Sevilla (Spanish)Golpedegato (Spanish) (Spanish), El Otro Juan (Spanish)Dziennik Internautów (Polish) and Alternative Blog (Japanese).

    Thanks Martin. For me that is the very highest praise you could give. Best wishes BabyB

    Just a pity that you didn’t get the cover of Vanity rather than the vain man photographed .. what would his name be “Bluster” or would it be “Idle Windage”? Well done

    Google said, “Did you mean ‘ejusdem generis’?” The USA Admiralty agrees with you, though.
