The Duck of Minerva

The Duck Quacks at Twilight

Changes afoot

July 1, 2009

Our regular readers have probably noticed a general slowdown in the arrival of new content around here. The first week of the Iranian election masked this trend a bit, but it will likely continue. The reason? Fewer active bloggers.

Some, such as Charli and PTJ, are taking short leaves of absence. In contrast, Peter and I will soon be taking much more lengthy breaks–both of us are due to start fellowships with responsibilities that either preclude, or severely limit, blogging activity.

After some lengthy internal discussions, we’ve decided to bring on a stable of guest bloggers, many of whom may be around for quite some time. We’ll be making a comprehensive announcement once we finalize the list, but we’re very pleased with the quality of the new people who have already agreed to blog at the Duck.
