Bad Blog

The lengthy overhaul of the Bad Subjects website -- note that our new URL is <> -- is nearing completion. I'm overwhelmed with guilt on that score -- though I'm never as guilty as tommix or kdotdammit -- because a combination of my professional and personal burdens, along with computer trouble, has made me into a largely non-functional member of the Production Team, precisely the sort of person that used to annoy me so intensely when I was more functional. Had I declined to volunteer for certain tasks in the first place, of course, I'd be feeling less guilty right now. Whatever. It's time to move on. And with that realization in mind, I've decided to retroactively delegate all the tasks I didn't help out with to the people -- mostly Geoff, Elizabeth, Jonathan, and Joe -- who actually did them. It's the only way that I'll return to productivity in the Bad Subjects arena.

Today's news on that front is that Bad Subjects is starting a public blog to which Production Team members past and present and perhaps trusted fellow travelers will contribute. I'm pushing for a comment feature, not only for blog entries, but also for articles and reviews on the site. Because I lack the expertise to make that happen, though, I don't know when or even if that feature will be implemented. I'm guessing that it will, however. Anyway, let me direct you to the blog and my first entry for it, posted yesterday. I'm not sure precisely how my entries here will overlap with the ones I make at Bad Subjects, but there will definitely be some productive back-and-forth. Despite my tribulations over the past few years, as well as conflict internal to the Production Team, Bad Subjects remains my first and greatest love in the realm of intellectual collaboration. It feels right to revive that part of me as I confront the distressing reality of contemporary politics.
