By the time I discovered the blog at Explainist.com, it had gone dark. The authors "Tom" and "Dave" had covered Common Craft , Scott McCloud's work at Google and a host of other explanation-related topics since January of 2007. Now the blog has sat unused since September 4th.
I'm writing because I hope Explainist.com will come back. I've tried to find the owner of the site, but the WHOIS lookup only shows the host's name. I even thought Tom and Dave might be the Tom Crawford and Dave Gray from VizThink and Xplane (respectively), but they don't claim credit either.
Tom and Dave, if you're listening, please consider cranking up Explainist.com again. There are lots of great things happening in the explanation world and we'd love to see your blog help cover it all.
