That’s the good news. The other good news is that I’m more up to speed with my administrative duties than I think I’ve ever been, not least because I have to be: this fall, I have a tenure review to conduct, a job search to chair, a national workshop to organize and produce, and a number of other assorted issues to contend with, and I’m feeling — for the moment at least — fairly well on top of them.
The bad news is that things in the rest of my work life have pretty much ceased to progress since I got home from Paris: I’ve got a book review due in a few days, and while I’ve made myself a really good and thorough outline, the review itself isn’t written; I’ve got a couple of presentations to give this fall, and while they’re coming from material I’ve already written, they’re still going to require some culling and organizing; and then there’s MediaCommons, which we’re hoping to relaunch soon, and that book, which I need to keep making progress on.
So things are likely to be a little less active around here for a bit than I’d like, and the gradual accretion of my twitterings, which demonstrates how little I’ve got to say even at the baseline threshold of 140 characters, is just becoming a bit embarrassing. So I’m going to turn that feed off for the time being, and at some point when those posts seem to have more to contribute, I might add them back in.
For now, onward. And happy fall!
