An "unofficial" Turn Off The Dark blog. But who is this anonymous webmaster?

Frankly, this seems like the sort of thing a sophisticated marketing firm would do in order to establish a counter-presence in the blogosphere without going on the record.

I mean, right?

A "whois" search shows that it's registered to Steven Tartick. He seems to be a freelance designer, so he could very well be doing this blog for hire rather than on his own. But there's also a Steven Tartick - may or may not be the same one - who produced a Broadway podcast, so he could also be doing this out of his own interest. Or both. Or neither.

I hope that was helpful.

I don't know about this particular case, but in general I think we give large organizations too much credit. For example most conspiracy theories are easily debunked by pointing out the inadequacies of the intelligence community.
