So, it's been almost a year since I've updated this blog. There's a good reason for that. I love Jekyll but I love HAML and SASS so much for markup that I hacked Jekyll quite a bit and then never touched it again. When my computer went up in smoke (literally) last summer, and I had to reinstall everything, the old, fragile environment it ran on was gone, and I couldn't reestablish it. So I started playing with using Jekyll's plugin architecture. Finally got it working now.
It is kind of crazy to think about everything that's happened since then. I wrote a content management system that runs a major newspaper site and handles millions of hits a month. I went to Germany again and had a great time with Tasha and my host family. I got involved in Occupy Richmond which was a life-changing experience. My essay Let the Free Market Eat the Rich! was published in the new Markets Not Capitalism compendium. And so on.
I have lots of things I want to write about -- most pressingly to flesh out my ideas on political correctness culture and how it distracts the Left from building a genuinely egalitarian society. So stay tuned!
