I’ve felt guilty this week that I haven’t blagged more, especially after I made that big no excuses just write proclamation a while ago. But I have actually written a fair amount, just not for here. I wrote a couple of ACRLog posts (one published, one in wait). Then I got sick and in a haze of coughing decided to contribute to that crazy one week one book project Hacking the Academy. I wrote two posts for it but only submitted one — the loser was a somewhat ranty piece about publishing in open access journals, which is a topic already pretty well covered in other submissions by many folks in a much more articulate fashion. And in the past 2 days I’ve written about 3,900 words of a presentation I’m giving at a conference at the end of next week. It’s not finished yet, but almost. Go me!

And I haven’t dumped a Twitterstream in here in a while, either, so here ya go.

@boonebgorges congratulations, boone, and have fun!

Wondering what to do with the blog posts not posted. Can’t bring myself to chuck 500 words in the trash. File under liminal?

Damn, my USB drive got a virus from a computer I used at work today. Probly infected my office machine 2. Should make tomorrow interesting.
