Note on Blogging and Scholarship
In my published scholarship, I seek to be as accurate and comprehensive as possible. I see blogging as a very different animal. My posts are really "think pieces," meant to provoke thinking and frame out possibilities, often written very quickly. When I cite research, I do it selectively, often from examples I happen to know about. The option for people to respond means that if I make obvious mistakes, there is an opportunity for the community to correct them (to the extent that anyone is reading my posts in the first place). Please note that I have frequently edited and will continue to develop blog posts without necessarily indicating I have done this. See also "Why I Blog."
