Random comments, questions, thoughts, ideas, suggestions as well as self-promotion and anonymous personal attacks -- put them here. Also, I have been very busy and have not updated the blogroll in a while -- if I said I would add you and did not, this would be a great time to remind me.
For those of you keeping track of my progress at Oxford, today I submitted the two required copies of the thesis and all required forms to the Examination Schools there. Probably in the middle of the summer I will fly to England to defend the thing in person; if that goes well, and I think it will, I will have my doctorate. Now that I have finished my work on the thesis and the book (which will be out in less than 10 weeks) -- as well as my Benbella essays and my class prep -- I am going to try to get this videoblogging thing going. Sorry for the delay, but hey, I had good reasons.
