Persecution and the Art of Group Blogging
I should add just a couple things relevant to PrawfsBlawg, since Gordon singles us out in his post on group blogging synergies for comment. First, as our "About Page" states, our goal at PrawfsBlawg is not to ensure the production of euphony among the various voices that are presented here. Thus there should be NO assumptions that what one person writes here is agreed with by other contributors to the blog; moreover, there is no obligation upon a writer to distance herself from the other persons writing here.
Second, and relatedly, insofar as Gordon first found our postings in the beginning to be a random hodgepodge, well, that's all to the good. Indeed, I confess that I'm a mite saddened by the prospect that some readers are in fact finding an emerging convergence. This is a polyphonous blog; readers should find more heterogeneity here than in TVC, Marginal Revolution, or Crooked Timber, since there are basically no litmus tests here, other than that the commentary should be reasonably sharp, interesting, useful, or funny, or some combination thereof. While the anchors of this blog may be old pals, not all of our guests are, and the point of rotating guest bloggers on a regular basis is to stir the pot so that there isn't a univocal convergence ultimately. Of course, if Gordon was paying us a compliment, which I think he was, then I tip my hat in appreciation. Notwithstanding the title to this post, there is no real or perceived persecution here. But you already knew that.
We now return to our scheduled programming...
