Welcoming Our First Group of Contributors!

We’re very excited to announce that we are testing a new commenting system for The Information.

We’re fortunate to have insightful subscribers and enjoy hearing from them regularly. So we reached out to a handful of them whose views and insights we think all our subscribers would enjoy and have asked them to comment from time to time—with no input or editing from us.

The first batch of contributors is below. You’ll be able to read their comments beneath each story and by clicking on their names. We will expand the group gradually over time.
