all of the email that I haven’t really had the time to notice over the last several weeks. In the process, as is always the case, old email bubbles to the surface in the midst of searches and sorts. Interesting tidbits:
– In 1999 I turned down a book deal because I was too busy writing books
– In 2005 the U-Alaska Fairbanks ordered me a copy of the Field Guide to Writing
– I had the chutzpah to apply for teaching jobs right out of undergrad
– I continue to fail to keep up with personal networking in significant ways
For several days in a row now while I’ve been away from home I’ve had the distinct motivation to come back and make a pointed blog post about something—a motivation that was forgotten before I arrived home once again.
I have no idea what I’d wanted to say.
I regret this loss, since it implies a loss of memory. After all, that’s what this blog is: the repressed and administratively boring parts of my memory.
I wish there were RSS feeds coming out of some of these academic sources rather than email lists. Email lists are primitive and with my box(es) still getting on the order of many hundreds of messages a day, they’re too much to keep up with.
