This is a Test Post

Friday, 15 April 2011, 13:50

I’m creating a test page to show what this would actually look like. It’s fairly easy to do, but it’s perhaps not as straightforward as formatting with a really good document layout program.

WordPress 2.0

Tuesday, 3 January 2006, 01:06

I just installed WordPress 2.0 after being made aware of the update through Alex Golub’s blog. So far, all seems good. If there’s any funkiness, however, over the next week or so, that may be the cause. Also, as one of my New Year’s resolutions (this is my first year of doing them since the […]

Comment Spam

Wednesday, 28 December 2005, 09:51

For the past few weeks, I’ve been deleting upwards of a dozen comments re: various bodily organs.

Feed Update

I’ve just figured out how to produce Atom feeds that give the entire blog posting, rather than just a snippet. If you’re using a news aggregator, you’ll (hopefully) notice that this and future posts will be entirely readable from within your aggregator. Sorry — I’m still learning this software. WordPress makes everything fairly easy, but […]

Fieldwork, Exchange, Debt

Saturday, 20 August 2005, 18:06

I get up, and we shake hands. I say ‘I’ll be back in a couple hours.’ ‘It don’t matter.’ ‘Yeah,’ I say, ‘but I’m bringing something.’ ‘Now that do matter!’

A just so story about anthropologists and informants…

Listening to Myself

Wednesday, 15 June 2005, 23:19

In listening to my recorded notes, I found I had done something surprising: I had lied.
