Who is Eddie Shoebang?

The comments left by Citybeat editor Dave Rolland (and independent confirmation by the man, himself, Nathan Dinsdale) have cleared up an error of assumption on my part: Eddie Shoebang is not Nathan Dinsdale.

Who is Eddie Shoebang? It’s a pseudonym, a nom de plume. Dave’s comments suggest that Eddie and Nathan had a working relationship in the past.

Googling “Eddie Shoebang” takes us immediately to the Everybody’s a Critic blog. Judging by the name (“Wicked Local”) and the Massachusetts real estate listing, one presumes that Eddie is also a writer for a blog based on the East Coast. The blogger profile seems to confirm it. Is this the same Eddie Shoebang?

It’s not quite a Bangalore call center, but along with the reported shift away from coverage of the local scene, is does raise some eyebrows about the direction that Citybeat is headed. If you have info, please leave it in the comments section. I just want to know. Or, if that’s a little too public, email me.
