Portside aims to provide varied material of interest to people on the left that will help them to interpret the world, and to change it.
It’s a big and complicated world. We try to poke into many aspects of it.
We send enough to permit variety. Different people have different priorities, interests and areas of activity.
Probably most readers delete lots of Portside messages unread after glancing at the subject line, or after looking at the lead paragraph.
Hopefully, most readers find something of interest most days.
No format suits everyone, but based on reader feedback, we’ve pretty much settled into the five-a-day mode.
