Earlier today, Lawfare published an article that was significantly beneath its editorial standards.

We are currently studying the problem of how to build a maximally useful Lawfare mobile app—and our tech team is looking to interview readers to figure out how people are using the site and what functionality people need. As we did when we built Lawfare's website, we are keen for reader involvement in the process to make sure the product we develop is as responsive to actual reader need as possible. If you are willing to be contacted by our tech folks for an interview, please fill out this short survey.

It's been a while since we did a readership survey. It's not that we haven't cared what you think. We've just been busy.
But it's time to do it again. We've got big plans—plans for partnerships, plans for new services, and plans for further expansion of the site. We've also got a lot of new readers, and we want to make sure that we are both serving our core readership and serving the many folks who have discovered the site over the past year.
