Eatocracy: We're going there

Dear readers,

Fix yourself a plate, grab a drink from the cooler and sit down with us for a minute. We've got some exciting news to feast on.

Like the rest of our colleagues at CNN, Eatocracy is gonna Go There. Uh - over there, actually, to our new home on CNN.com.

We'll still cook up the same robust blend of food news, culture and politics, opinion, cooking tutorials, heartfelt essays, goofy musings and eye-rolling food puns that Eatocracy has been serving on the blog for the past four years. But expect an extra helping of slow-braised, bigger, badder, deeper stories that might even (gasp!) take us away from our desks every once in a while and out into the unknown.

We're hungry for this new adventure and we invite you to join us at the table.

Cheers,

Kat Kinsman and Sarah LeTrent

Our new home: Eatocracy on CNN.com

Go There

p.s. You'll still be able to find older stories right here on the blog, but make sure to bookmark eatocracy.cnn.com to get here.

          Why would you assume that I ever wondered that?

          Why would anyone assume you have a functioning brain, let alone a heart? Based on your comments...just sayin'...

        • @whoever ^

          Well, I must have a functioning brain if I'm able to manipulate a computer and have at least a half-way lucid 'discussion' with such a bitter, judgmental person such as yourself? Why would you say that I'm 'heartless?' Have I posted anything as harsh, unkind or as unfeeling as you have to merit that slur?

        Hi Jingle Bells. Yeah, can't post on Disqust from work, where, as we all know, all good blogging is done:) I can from home though, so I'll try to remember to drop by once in a while. Being in front of a computer all day sometimes makes it the last thing on my mind when I get home. Gotta say I miss "talking" to y'all though, so I'll be around.

          So dog-gone willin'
          So kiss him (I wanna see you kiss him. Wanna see you kiss him)

          Listen to me now

          He's never near you to comfort and cheer you
          When all those sad tears are fallin' baby from your eyes
          He might be thrillin' baby but a-my love (my love, my love)
          So dog-gone willin'
          So kiss him (I wanna see you kiss him. I wanna see you kiss him)
          Go on and kiss him goodbye, na-na na-na-na na na

          Na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye

    Hello all! Home from vaca, decided to check in with RC about the spacon & I find out the end of "here" is near. Glad you can still keep in touch thru email.
    So RC, teriyaki spam, too? Have you tried that or the bacon? Lmk, I'm still gonna try it if ya tell me it's good. Lol!
    Weeds, grilled spam as an app? How do you serve it off the grill?
    I never thought is see the day I inquired about spam. Lol!
    Well, I think I'll try to comment "over there" & see if it sticks this time. Yes DD, I'll take some peanut butter with me just to be safe. 😉

      I honestly haven't had a chance to try the spacon yet. I actually think the teriyaki Spam might be better. I'll try to keep you posted!
      I, like Sir Bid. am limited to "read only" when it comes to Disqus at work.
      I also wanted to say to RH-thanks for the mention. As one of the other "newbies", it was nice to be welcomed by all. As I've said before, I can post from home, so I'll try to stay "connected"

    Fine Klatsch humans! I get the sense that many of you have moved on, but hopefully are keeping in touch. It's getting harder and harder to clean up the robot mess here, and since we're not actively posing anymore, we're hoping that those who want to will move over to this thread that we've had up since early August: http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/28/living/eatocracy-coffee-klatsch/

    I get that change is hard, but this new environment over there is where we have long wanted to go editorially. Sarah and I are both able to focus on bigger, better, more in-depth stories on all the beats we cover - and leave our desks to report every once in a while.

    I very much hope you will join us there. This all goes to say that I wanted to give people time to share contact info just in case it all goes wacky. I'm not saying goodbye - just see you at the new house. 10/1 is the last day we'll have comments open on the blog and after that, they'll be closed.

    Yeah, it's weird. But I hope you'll make the leap with us. I've spend many, many, many, many hours of my work and personal time trying to make sure y'all have had a place to commune for the past few years. I hope you know I always have, and continue to give a damn about Los Klatchmenons.

    Even if I never know your names.

      Kat

      A huge, huge, HUGE thank you for keeping us going over all these years. I know we were a byproduct of your original vision of Eatocracy and yet you didn't just ignore us or abandon us. For that and your patience, I thank you. This place has been a place were I have come to get away from a stressful work day or to just share a laugh, I never in a million years thought reading JDizz's comments would make me a regular here and the firendships formed – its been a fun ride. While I am limited to use discus, I will try to keep an eye out for things on the new site.

      This is not goodbye and thank you again for all your work – your true passion and character shine through and you have made other better people because of it Kat. If you are ever in Wash DC, send me a tweet (@TallPaulDC) as I'd love to buy you a drink or break bread with you.

      To the Klatch – As I said earlier, I am limited to the new Eatocracy Discus format, others should have my email, but feel free to ask AlleD, Truth or RH for it.

      As the old 5@5 line goes: I"D HIT IT!!!!

          September 22, 2014 at 8:38 am |
      • Freudian Bra @ Turth's Slip, uh, Quip

        Yes, those. Add in any of the Harry Potter movies, too. In both cases (both equaling 10 movies) the books were better, but the movies were equally entertaining for me.

        As far as the slip, haven't worn one in many, many years. So no. ~_~

        September 22, 2014 at 8:48 am |
        • Turth™@QOD, DD (is that Freudian?)

          Throw in "The Hunger Games" to the HP series...The franchise seems to have everything from a strong heroine in JLaw (who seems to remind me of a MShannon for the Millennial crowd) to Don Sutherland (from the original M*A*S*H) as a GREAT villain, and a really well written screenplay. Looking forward to the next installment.

          In other movie news, I think I have Bride now hooked on Ayn Rand. Spent part of the weekend dissecting Atlas Shrugged from the t!tle on down, then watched the original Fountainhead, with Gary Cooper and Patricia Neal. Good stuff there...

          September 22, 2014 at 9:18 am |
        • Freudian Bra @ Turth's Slip, uh, Quip

          I've read Atlas Shrugged. Haven't seen the movie yet. Those oldies are hard for me to watch partly because of their often slow pace. I have not read the Hunger Games or the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series' yet – and I want to before seeing the movies.

          If mammary serves, JBJ blessed me with that moniker. It's not one I would have picked myself ... because it would be .... underdeveloped. ~_~

    Kat –
    I don't think Jim was yelling at you, but I think he rather was venting his frustration at the changes that are taking place in a community that we all have come to care about and very much appreciate and cherish. Several years ago, CK took off in large part to YOUR innovation and perception that we were becoming bigger than the sum of our parts. IOW, you helped to nurture and grow the Klatch into just that tightly knit and mutually supportive community.

    Although we do not say it nearly often enough, THANK YOU to both you and SLT, for all of the support and work that you do, especially behind the scenes and on your own time. I know that you must see us as often unruly children, but that should never diminish the affection and appreciation that we hold you both in. You have consistently shown yourself to be a thoroughly open and sensitive person, and while I cringe at the level of garbage that you must have to endure, Nobody should have to do that, especially someone of your sensitivity.

    I think I speak for the majority of us when I say that the hardest part of embracing change is letting go of a community we have come to love. While Disqus will eventually be accepted and the bugs worked out, it is human nature to want that which is familiar to us. Please do not ever read that as any form of a personal attack, We love and support all that you do and have done for us.

        September 16, 2014 at 1:52 pm |
    • Φ Weeds Φ @RC

      RC, Your company blocks Disqust as do a majority of companies because of its invasiveness. Yes it peaks into your PC. It retrieves your real email address and other goodies, like the programs you have and other juicy statistics.
      In short it takes up too much of the corporate bandwidth.
      How do you think Disqust makes money? It is in a profit sharing program with large internet sites like CNN.
      We are revenue to them. If one person is worth between $26 and $42 to facebook for all the info they glean, I'm guesstimating each person on Disqust is worth $2-4 easy. The more you comment, the more you are worth.

      September 17, 2014 at 12:41 pm |
      • Φ Weeds Φ @RC

        I have seen, observed and participated in very large "communities", with large diverse populations that thrived off the differences of opinion about the topics they were passionate about. Over a course of 3 ore so years, the ones I have been a big part of, have been devastated by Disqus. Disqus is a Blogger's Roundup, nothing but crickets left.
        That said, I offer this about that:
        * Corporations also block widgets and elements like Disqust because it has no "corporate value" , meaning too much of their employees time is wasted on places like Disqust. That is probably the most likely reason you cannot use it at work. Try it on wifi at some lunch place and it'll probably work.

        September 17, 2014 at 12:58 pm |
        • RC @ Φ Weeds Φ

          Yeah, I think you're right on the money about corporate "blocking". Even being able to access CNN is in itself a minor miracle, let alone Diqust. I'm still surprised I can even post here from work.
          Thanks for the info though........

    Dear Ms.Kinsman,
    After reading your reply to one of the members of The Coffee Klatsch in todays postings,I must say that I am offended. You seem to throw us regulars in with the people making trouble on individual stories written by yourself or others. As one of THE Original 3 on this site-WE know BETTER. When you first started this Blog,sure we tried to get away with as much as possible,yet….Where else could you get the promos for people to look at it with the Endorsements of The View or Anderson Cooper on his syndicated program. We The Klatsch did something that is uncommon on the Internets….We Bonded as a family,kept up with each other over the years and truly became friends to this day. In my opinion, YOU threw us under the bus today and then hit reverse in case you missed. The Klatsch is NOT the problem. Please look elsewhere to vent your anger and then fix the damn Disgus site or do away with it.
    Thank You,
    Jim

    September 12, 2014 at 3:06 pm |
    • Kat Kinsman

      Please don't yell at me. I often feel like I get all of the blame for stuff over which I have no control, and I have only ever gone out of my way to make a place for people to gather. I don't get paid extra - in fact, some higher-ups have asked me to stop over the years. But I know you all bonded, so I try to do my best.

      I lumped everyone in because you don't see what I have to see. In order for The Klatsch to remain usable, I have to do a lot of things you never see on the front end. The banning, the cleaning, the purging, the refining of the filter - it's emotionally foul work I have to put in so you don't ever see it.

      Being accused of not caring and throwing you under the bus really actually hurts. You have no idea what I've done to keep this around, the hours I've spent and the arguments I've had to have. Please remember, I'm a human being, would you?

        I haven't been here as long as some of the others, but I do feel saddened, too. I know you are not CNN, and thus don't make the decisions. Disgust is not the best service, by any means. I feel like I'm being forced into some sort of lock-step by them. At any rate, I'll try, or continue to try, but a lot of the posts that should be on Eatocracy leave no room for commentary anymore.

        • Weeds

          spoofing IP addresses is so easy a middle school kid can do it.
          Disqus forces one to use a real email address and that also is easy to spoof. Still, a high school kid with half a brain can do that. It probably isn't worth the trouble to post here though.
          If man can make it, another man can break it, modify it or steal it.

      That's odd - there should be a comments section. Might just take a sec to load.

      Edit: It's there, indeed. Just takes a sec or two. I hope you'll stick around and get used to it, because we have some really exciting stuff planned, and this will give us the time to focus on it.

    Unfortunately Eatocracy no longer has a individual feed on the new site so It's time to say goodbye to the Eatocracy feed in my RSS reader. I get 100 stories a day from various sites and I don't have time to check Eatocracy every day.

      Hi there! Like I said on Twitter, I'm so sorry to hear that. We're doing this so we'll have the opportunity to focus more intently on stories in a way that we think will be resonant and interesting. And CNN.com's redesign in the next few months will make it even easier to follow.
