So what does this recognition say about the growth of interest in polyamory in 2009? Quite a lot, actually. The Newsweek article is probably the most widely-read mainstream article ever written on the subject. It was referenced far and wide over the internet by mainstream journalists and religious conservatives (who were none too pleased, of course), and it sparked no fewer than 727 comments on the article on the Newsweek website. It has certainly helped raise awareness of polyamory, in great part due to the positive example set by Terisa, Larry, Scott, Matt, and Vera. We owe them our thanks.
If you've never seen the "Family" web series, you can see it in its uncensored entirety here. After concluding its first season on October 31 it's on haitus just now but is to return in 2010. Stay tuned.
