When I mentioned that a very special guest would be announcing the upcoming New York Times Crossword Blog, I didn't expect anyone would figure out who that guest would be. I think the first two guesses were both Garson Hampfield, which turns out to be correct. I'll try never to underestimate my audience again.
Of course by now the cat's out of the bag but the name of the blog and the new URL are a closely-held secret which I'll let Mr. Hampfield reveal. Here's a hint to that, which I now fully expect you to get. The Times had to do a special deal with a movie company to get permission.
If you haven't yet met Garson, you should start with his brilliant debut video here.
Then check out the new announcement video here.
