Very sorry this blog has been so quiet. I am deep in a very busy, very fulfilling semester. I promise to post several times in the next week. Some topics I’m working on:
- A review of Matt Yglesias’s The Rent Is Too Damn High! ebooklet– or should that be in quotations, and not italics?– and a consideration of the form. As soon as it becomes available, I’ll read it and post on it. I promise that consideration of the future of publishing will be minimal.
- Book recommendations and synopses for texts that were helpful and informative for me as I came to social scientific, statistical, and methodological understandings and knowledge.
- Fluency– what it is, what it isn’t, what the latest scholarship says, and why you (and I) can’t use the “starting too old” excuse for why we don’t speak a second language anymore.
- A defense of Microsoft Word. (Really.)
Looking forward to it. Thanks for your interest and readership.
