When I blog, I switch back and forth between browser tabs all the time in order to cut-and-paste excerpts and grab links to related posts. I also switch over to Photoshop/Excel/PowerPoint a fair amount in order to futz around with images and graphs. But the iPad doesn’t support multitasking and its browser doesn’t have tabs. So how do you blog on the thing? Any early adopters out there who can weigh in on this?

UPDATE: Via comments, I see that Safari for the iPad does support multiple windows, it just doesn’t do it via a tabbed interface. (You click an icon and then choose the window you want to bring to the foreground.) So that’s one question answered. As for the other, I suppose as long as you’re just doing straight text blogging, the other stuff doesn’t matter.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
