This weblog has been a long time in the making. It’s meant to supplant the many, many messages I’ve sent using the “E-mail This” buttons on national news sites and on other blogs.
Of course, there are simpler ways to share links with friends, like del.icio.us. I’m also planning to include my take on news and events, with an emphasis on analysis rather than polemicism.
And there are broader ambitions: I’d also like to share reviews of books and other media, thoughts on products and especially electronic gadgets, and analysis of trends in higher education or elsewhere.
Along the way, I hope this weblog will serve as a place for constructive discussion among readers and commenters. To share your thoughts with me, just hit the “Comment” button on any post, or e-mail me directly.
Thanks for reading.
