My night out with the bibliobloggers

Sunday night I felt privileged to attend the gathering of bibliobloggers attending SBL. Joel Watts, who as the highest ranked biblioblogger I met all evening, was suitably the first person I encountered and one of the most personable fellows I met; Bob Cargill, who was as friendly and engaging as he is on his site; […]

It’s largely unintentional, since this site is about ideas more than about me as a person living a normal life. I just don’t have much to say about me here on this blog. One area of my personal […]

Five favorite things

My long-time friend Heather has tagged me with a meme listing my five favorite things (in no particular order). So here we go! 1) Receiving and spreading knowledge. I am an education nut (read: “nerd”); I love to receive it, and welcome opportunities to share it. 2) Discussing important topics. I want real back-and-forth dialogue […]
