For more than five years I had a professionally developed, static site at jeremyroyalhoward.com. The day it went live it featured a few Ph.D. papers I had written as well as some book projects I had been involved in to that point in my career. It featured exactly those same things five years later. The site was not easy to update, and so I left it sitting there, a non-interactive time capsule that did little more than fetch me some email contacts from occasional wanderers who stumbled onto the site. WordPress holds out promise of providing something more useful. Assuming I can learn a few new tricks, I plan to post here any observations or speculations that can further discussion of things that I believe matter. And I reserve the right to be completely frivolous on occasion.
