Welcome New Blogger: The Napster

With Oneman gone, we had to look for someone who could fill his shoes. You can imagine our delight when we were contacted by Napoleon Chagnon! His book on the Yanamamo was one of the first texts I ever read in Anthropology, and is one of the most famous ethnographies of the late sixties, early seventies. Now a professor emeritus at UC Santa Barbara, Chagnon has long been a lurker on Savage Minds.

Some Anthropologists still remember the Darkness in El Dorado controversy, and that will certainly be one of the first things that “The Napster” (as he would like to be known online) will be addressing in his posts, so I won’t say anything more about that here.

Please join us in extending a hearty welcome to The Napster!

  1. is this an april fools? You really think its a good idea? Eek! Let’s see what he has to say and then if you will all be brave enough to put across the other side of the debate…

  2. I knew that Oneman didn’t have what it takes to finish his dissertation. Finally, a REAL MAN will be blogging on Savageminds. Welcome, Napster!

  3. Last time I saw Chagnon, he had a classic anthropological beard. I have no clue about Oneman’s facial hair status but from now on, I think this should be a requisite for all male SM bloggers. Chagadelic.

  4. I’ve been released from my Oath of Secrecy in order to clear up a very crucial point which my superiors at the Dept of Homeland Security feel is vital to the ongoing success of our nation’s National Security program: I totally have a beard!

  5. Geez, I go away for a while and this is what I come back to. First of all, Oneman used to have a beard but I’m not sure what his current facial hair status is.

    Second, why do only male SMers get to have facial hair? If I were still an SMer (well, I am but in a different sense) I would be highly offended.

    Anyhoo, congrats to Oneman on his new joke. I mean . . . job.
