Join my new subscriber chat
A private space for us to connect
Today I’m announcing a brand new addition to my Substack publication: the The Texas Energy and Power Newsletter subscriber chat.
I’ll host an “Ask Me Anything” chat on Substack this Wednesday, May 3 from 11:30-1:00 CST for paid subscribers (see below for info on how to become a paid subscriber or request a complimentary subscription).
This is something new I’m trying out to hear from subscribers. In addition to answering any questions you have, I’d love to hear from you about things you’d like to learn more about and/or you think need more attention which I could then cover in future articles.
If you are not a paid subscriber, please consider becoming one. You can always set up a trial or opt for the monthly subscription at only $6 per month. If you are unable to pay, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’re happy to consider a free subscription. We don’t want money to be a barrier to developing deeper knowledge on these topics, so please reach out if it is, especially if you are a student or work at a non-profit.
This AMA will be done through the Substack app using their Chat feature. I’ll likely use the Chat for two purposes going forward: first, I’ll post short prompts, thoughts, and updates as issues develop over the last several weeks of session, and you can jump into the discussion. Think about it as Twitter, but without the mess Twitter has become. I have loved the #energytwitter community but Twitter is now suppressing Substack links and allowing hate speech to flourish. It’s also the cause of a lot of problems detailed in several of my favorite books like Digital Minimalism, Deep Work, and Stolen Focus.
These Substack chats and threads will allow us to engage with each other and have further conversation on energy technologies, markets, and policies, with a focus on Texas. I hope other leading #energytwitter voices will join me and great writers like Lynn Kiesling and Dave Roberts on Substack. If you’re one of them, let me know so I can recommend you (and hopefully vice versa).
Again, please mark your calendar for the first of these conversations in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) in the Chat next week, May 3rd, from 11:30am to 1pm CST. Please pop in, introduce yourself, and ask anything you are wondering about in terms of energy and power issues in Texas and beyond.
To learn how to get started with chat, read the directions below. I’m excited to connect with you more!
How to get started
Download the app by clicking this link or the button below. Substack Chat is now available on both iOS and Android.
Open the app and tap the Chat icon. It looks like two bubbles in the bottom bar, and you’ll see a row for my chat inside.
Edit your notifications. Chats are sent via the app, not email, so turn on push notifications if you don’t want to miss the conversation as it happens.
That’s it! Don’t forget our May 3rd AMA, and if you have any issues, check out Substack’s FAQ.
