  1. In all seriousness, I’d like to encourage non-bloggers who feel their needs are not met by the current online sociology community to start their own blogs. I would be willing–and perhaps scatterplotters and orgtheorists (and others) would also–to direct traffic to new blogs, to comment upon them, and provide any advice the authors might need. I’d love it if 2012=soc blogosphere 2.0.
