I don’t know if I stated this clearly enough, so I’ll take this opportunity to explain how I hope NN works going forward.
I created this blog not only to be my outlet, but also to be your outlet. Everybody has something intelligent to say on some issue, everybody has their area of expertise. The blog can be as diverse as the world itself, but I need people who know about issues I do not know about to contribute too. You do not have to be a professional or a student of a certain area; you simply need to know enough to put together a coherent argument about how something could work more efficiently.
Also, I know some of my posts can get technical. At a certain point, you need to be technical in order to directly express your point. If at any time you do not understand something I have said, comment or email me and I will be happy to explain it as simply as possible to the NN community as a whole. It’s like your teachers always told you, if you have a question chances are 10 other people are wondering the same thing.
As I said, you can determine what topics this blog focuses on. It can be just me spinning my wheels every week, or it can be you getting your opinions heard as well. So get involved and make a difference. Email me any stories you want me to put up at email@example.com.
I have been busy with interviews and classes today so no posts other than MMQB. Check back tomorrow for an in-depth analysis of the current Israeli-Palestine conflict in Normative Narratives’ inaugural “Conflict Watch Tuesday”
