We’re up and running. To or from what, I’m not so sure, but surely the first post should be to thank those who made this blog possible. My colleague Irv Rein, author of The Elusive Fan, was the first to suggest that an academic book could have a second life on the Web. That suggestion would have remained merely an idea but for Yogi (Bob Yovovich), who was the perfect pest, the burr under the saddle, the guy who wouldn’t take no for an answer. The guy who made it happen was David Huffaker, a grad student in Northwestern’s Media, Technology, and Society program; David is a model of how to be both skilled and good natured. Thanks to all.
