In the past year I have often been asked why I don’t have a blog. My answer was always that I write so much, already, that I don’t have time to write anything else. But, as should be obvious, I’ve now changed my mind. I have come (belatedly) to the conclusion that a blog can be a very valuable supplement to my books and the writing I do for the New Yorker. What I think I’d like to do is to use this forum to elaborate and comment on and correct and amend things that I have already written.
Great to learn that Malcolm Gladwell has started a weblog. His post Mea Culpa shares why he decided todo so. While agreeing with much in The Tipping Point and little in Blink I always find Malcolm’s work food for thought. Looking forward to joining in the conversation.
