Top Billing! Although it may be bad form to cite blogs I am part of here, they just happened to mesh together thematically on thinking historically on the same day. These are really good, meaty posts that complement one another well even though they come from the Left and the Right. John Jay’s post will also interest those concerned with 4GW:

Progressive Historians (Jeremy Young) – Historians and the Gospel of Professionalism and Toward a “History that Does Work in the World”

Chicago Boyz ( John Jay) The MSM Misses the Bout: Part I , The MSM Misses the Bout: Part II and The MSM Misses the Bout: Part III

I am going to have to go back later and add comments at the site when I’ve finished writing my own posts tonight.

Jamais Cascio –  Singularities Enough, and Time ( Hat tip to John Robb)

Subsingularity is cool too.

Swedish Meatballs Confidential …..is back in “not safe for work” business.

In Harmonium Notes towards a theory of Information Opeations (IO) and Structure and Function in Information Operations

Kinda theory-heavy but without some deep thought and conversation, terms like IO will continue function primarily as conceptual “magic cloud” umbrellas that obscure more differences than they reveal.

There would be a certain innoculation effect here in Zimbabweans against future cretinous “Big Man” nationalism.

    "…it may be bad form to cite blogs I am part of…"

    It is not.

    Citing to other people’s posts, if they are good, and may be of interest to your readers here, cannot be bad form, no matter where they appear.

    So sayeth Lex.

  2. Jeremy Young:

    Thanks for the links as always.  To the readers, I’m not quite sure why ZP recommended the first of my pieces — it’s far from my best work.  I’m pretty proud of the second one though.  If you only have time to read one of mine, skip the first one, eh?

  3. Jay@Soob:

    Thank you much, Sage pundit of Zen.

  4. John Jay:

    Thanks for the link. I’m not totally happy with Part III, as I have a lot more to say about Russia and the Tredgedy of the Commons after the Cold War. But I gotta eat, ya know?
