Dead Socialists over here, obviously, and Dead Botanists over here (e.g., here, here and, more extensively, here), and now some other socialist blogger is running a Dead Kings and Queens Watch over at this new blog (well, new to me), Histomat (e.g., here, here or here).
(It’s almost Fourier-esque, isn’t it? “But who’s going to remind people about the anniversaries of the day that certain kinds of people died?” “I know, the socialist bloggers will be quite happy reminding people about the anniversaries of the day that certain kind of people died!”)
I thought that while I was away I had regressed all the way back to Flappy Bird status, having been a Marauding Marsupial for a long time, bypassing the Adorable Rodent stage on my way down. But apparently this isn’t so much the consequence of a three-week blog-silence, but of general chaos in the ecosystem as major re-engineering is underway.
And, thinking of blogwidgets, do put yourself on the Map of the Stoa, if you haven’t already. Some parts of the world still appear to be unrepresented.
Apologies for the break. I was off in San Francisco for a few days, and wasn’t scribbling on the blog for a few days either side of the trip in order to squeeze in all the things I had to squeeze in.
The end of term is always a busy time, especially if you disappear off to San Francisco for a few days.
No posts since the weekend, I’m afraid, and no more for about a week, probably. So come back then.
Big feature on UK political bloggers over in G2 today (though the online version doesn’t have the pictures; I’ll have to pick up a copy later today). My spies at tehgraundiad-HQ tell me that the most popular topic of conversation among the various assembled bloggers was Star Trek.
Don’t forget to add yourself to the Virtual Stoa World-Map, if you haven’t already.
It had to happen. I’ve created one of those nifty frappr maps for this blog, in a vain attempt to demonstrate that not all of the people who glance at this blog live in Oxford or London.
Go and add yourselves, readers of the Stoa, especially if you, um, don’t live in Oxford or London…
