Around the Web Digest

I put off the Around the Web Digest for the month of June because, come early July, we were already enjoying the many excellent guest posts from Deepa and her crew. Because I know how special it is to be above the fold and because the posts were all really good, I was loathe to take away the spotlight. That and I didn’t want my Around the Web column to be buried in the onslaught of fresh posts!

So here, a month late, is the Around the Web Digest for the month of June. Please follow us @savageminds or like us on Facebook to get updates on a (semi-)daily basis.

As a final farewell to a our guest contributors I hope that they (and our general readership) continue to seek out the satisfaction of expression that can be found in the world of blogging. It’s free, its easy, and more people should do it. I hope Deepa and her colleagues continue to blog so that I can link to them in future editions of Around the Web.

  1. Matt: Thank you for the nice words about last month’s academic precarity and ethnography project and for the encouragement for us to keep blogging. As a first-time blogger, I really enjoyed the immediacy and the interactivity of the form.

    I also wanted to let you and readers know that our fearless leader in blogging, Deepa Reddy, is a “she”. 🙂

    Thanks again for the shout-out and these great links (already read the Henwood.)
