spring 2018

I’ve finished a short project, “astute reasoning and ‘fake news’.”

On the home page, right column, the “May 2018” dates don’t indicate major change from February; but aspects of the “astute reasoning...” project are implicitly pertinent to each Area, and that’s indicated.

The “sense of site” page has been revised (and shortened). Now, I’m returning to background development which I expect to consume most of my free time through June.

April 30 | short post: “being there.” Another posting today, but not related to that short post: “About ‘legitimating values between religions’.”

April 14 | I want to organize notes I made now-and-then over the past few months, during breaks from whatever else I was doing. I write something worthwhile (to me) every day. And there’s offline work from recent years (i.e., nothing that’s part of the 1,000+ book-size pages that are already available through this Web site). That will result in hundreds of more pages to share in coming years—to write for sharing (distinct from the Work that’s not for online writing, the Work that becomes the basis for online writing), given that I’m not hit by a bus while crossing a street, or whatever. (Storm-thrashed trees fall on a roof, wham! You never know what hit you, literally).

Almost daily, I write comments at NYTimes and Washington Post articles, media which don’t allow access to one’s acumulated comments (unlike Disqus, which gives the public an archive). So, I record my comments when I post them (including a link to the article that my comment was about). My large archive of that (several years worth now) is like a running discourse (albeit a bit cubist) on political uncanniness. I could turn all of it into many blog postings. But I don’t want to give time to that soon.

These are points you surely wanted to know.

March 24 | I’m organizing—grouping, subgrouping, and sequencing—approximately 250 bibliography items (the actual books, many of which are edited collections under a given topic) relative to the 11 Areas of The Project.
(If you haven’t been keeping up, that may seem exotic, if not merely precursory).

That also causes offline improvisations relative to the countless themes (hundreds, it seems, under tens of topics) that The Project comprises.
So, I have nothing brief and pithy to share yet. Sorry to be presently useless..

February 25 | Everything’s backstage development again. But postings will emerge, “valuing higher society,” for example. (I revised the “sense of site” page a few days ago, mostly paragraph 4: “So, I enjoy....”)

February 9 | I added 850+ pages and postings, thereby organizing 13 years of improvisations as past. The Web site has been reconceived, and a new sense of going further is completed.
