Dear PEEKers,

You may notice the new additions to our baby blogroll. While feedback to PEEK has generally been very positive, several readers -- many of whom are bloggers themselves -- have expressed disappointment at the paucity of women and people of color in our blogroll, a regrettable error for which we apologize. The blogroll was posted as a reflection of our reader survey and was not an editorial determination of the blogs or subject matter we find most important. So, in an effort to correct this inaccurate reflection of our focus, and the blogosphere in general, we humbly offer a handful of the blogs written by women and people of color that are, and will remain, on PEEK's radar, and assure you that the coming days and weeks will see more of the same. I'm heartened by the concerns and tenacity of our readers and their willingness to act on them. It's that yearning for dialog that makes the blogosphere the most exciting and dynamic development on the media landscape! -- Evan
