Where to begin? Firstly, sorry it's been so long. Secondly, the big news is that I'm one of the contributors to Cogitamus, a new group blog composed of Ezra alumni and a few other folks we managed to fool into thinking that it would be a good idea to join us.
So in addition to the end of year nuttiness, I've also been working on design stuff, setting up accounts and domain names and even working to ban a particularly persistent troll whose specialty is harassing female bloggers.
I will keep the Thinkery, at least for a while, but I won't be regularly updating it. I will use it to post the occasional item that doesn't really fit the model of a group blog that focuses on politics. Posts such as one dealing with the ramifications of the filioque in the Nicene Creed, and why that matters to every Christian in the world even if you don't know it.
So please, please update your bookmarks and change your browsing habits to head over to Cogitamus
, folks!) instead of here. I'll keep this post on the top of the screen. Whenever I write something that I post back over here, I'll put up a note and link to it at Cogitamus, so there's no need to worry about missing anything if you don't regularly come back here.
