This blog is moving!

So, as some of you may know, I’ve been invited to join Freethought Blogs, an awesome network for secular/skeptical bloggers.

My new address is http://freethoughtblogs.com/brutereason, although I may set up a redirect for this domain eventually.

I repeat:

http://freethoughtblogs.com/brutereason.

I’m going to change the source of the RSS feed so that you don’t have to change it, but I’ll post a few more reminders on this site to make sure nobody gets lost. :)

My intro post is up if you want to see it!

And, of course, thanks to everyone who helped make this happen.

My Massive List of Social Justice Resources

Yo, remember that huge list of social justice resources I mentioned that I was working on?

Well, it’s up!

Feel free to use this for your own education, to refer newbies, and so on. Share it widely. Hopefully it’ll help people.

And, of course, it will be getting updated constantly and I’d love to get recommendations for articles, websites, books, and other stuff to add. Some of the sections are still woefully sparse, so if any of those are subjects that you particularly care about, please share your favorite resources.

Otherwise, there’s more explanation over on the linked post, so go read that if you’re interested.

Thanks!

Update! Social Justice Resources

Because apparently I am not busy/obsessive enough already, I’ve decided to develop a massive document of resources about social justice and other political/personal issues that concern me (mental health, communication, sex, etc.). It will include links to blogs, websites, books, and individual articles that I’ve found interesting and useful, as well as the sorts of 101-y resources that I tend to overlook in my usual reading, but that will be useful for pointing newcomers to.

If you’d like to see what I have so far, here it is.

Oh, and suggestions for resources to add to the list are very welcome!

 

Apologies for the lack of posts.

I’m on vacation in Israel and fully expected to be able to use my laptop and write, except that I neglected to buy the proper power outlet converter thingie. Now I’m desperately trying to find one here and cannot, and it’s driving me up the wall.

Advice would be appreciated. Hopefully I’ll be back soon because I have so much to write about.

This blog will now have short posts too!

After much deliberation, I’ve decided to start writing more short posts on this blog. By short I mean, several hundred words as opposed to my usual 1000-plus-word ones.

The reason for this is twofold:

  • to make it easier for me to write more often, since I don’t always have time and energy for those huge pieces, and
  • to allow me to comment on things that I just don’t have enough Thoughts to write a thousand words on.

I will label all of the short-ish posts with an [In Brief] tag in the post title, so that if you’re really only here for the novella posts, you can just avoid them.

That said, I think you’ll like them! :)
