Long Lost Linkage

[Starting clockwise from the top…you can click on the pictures OR the links below]

Malcolm Gladwell’s newest article about the historical impact of social media. Stick with it, the end is phenomenal. If Gladwell’s writing it, there’s a good chance we’re reading it.

Interesting Washington Post article about our future. We don’t necessarily subscribe to all of the conclusions, the premise, though, is intriguing.

A guy we’ve been following for quite a while just started a new blog about how to build your own blog. It’s worth your time.

I'm an aspiring freelance writer and blogger (which doesn't make a ton of sense when you think about it). I started a blog called Our Marriage Project and one about OSU called Pistols Firing. I love both of them, and I love my wife. And I love Kevin Durant, Explosions in the Sky, Tim Riggins, Blue Moon ale, Twitter, and the state of Georgia.

  1. The Washington Post article on the future was garbage. Just garbage. The author claims that "those who defend the conditions of incarceration usually do so in non-moral terms (citing costs or the administrative difficulty of reforms)." The author then proceeds to indict the conditions of incarceration on completely non-moral terms–citing incarceration numbers, relative incarceration rates, and the like. If the author wishes to show that the current way of doing things is wrong, then he must make a value judgment about the facts he so brazenly laid out. Never once did he espouse a value position on the condition of our prisons and show why it is either right or wrong.

    As it turns out, the author uses the very procedure he condemns in order to make a point we cannot possibly understand. Great, he showed us tons of facts–so what? Why would future generations condemn us for these things? What is the moral basis here?

    Sorry for the rant–couldn't post on the WashPost website.
