I finished transferring my blog posts from Open Salon. I will leave the old blog intact; I just won’t update it.
I did this because I have more flexibility over here. My avatar doesn’t pop up with each post. The statistical doodads are subtler or altogether absent. This will be a plain old-fashioned blog. A good-old-days type of thing (except when I’m lamenting the past, present, or future, which I do fairly often). Whoever wants to read and comment on my pieces is welcome to do so. (Of course I reserve the right to delete any spam or inappropriate comments.)
Most but not all of the posts are about education. Some are satirical.
I took the picture in the heading. I welcome readers to guess where I took it. The first to guess correctly will receive a copy of my book, Republic of Noise: The Loss of Solitude in Schools and Culture.
