Like all of you, I have been watching the events unfold across the country under the general rubric “Occupy Wall Street.” Rarely am I ever mistaken for a street-level activist–and for good reason, but I confess to being very inspired by what I see. And so, without claiming any mantle of leadership or authority, I will devote the next round of Frameshop posts to Occupy Wall Street (OWS).
Long-time readers of Frameshop will also note that it has been some time since the site content has been updated. I have been very active both writing and commenting via Twitter (#JeffreyFeldman) and have opted over the past few years to post my original work on The HuffingtonPost. Also, I have been fortunate to find a new audience via regular appearances on CBC television. Altogether, I chose to transition Frameshop from a day-to-day source of engagement with politics to a resource for those looking to understand issues deeper via the past work on the site.
But current events have drawn me back to the work of wrestling with the language and ideas at the heart of American politics. In a nutshell: We’re back.
To new readers joining us from Twitter, HuffPo and CBC–welcome! To familiar faces who have been with us all along–welcome back!
As always, I apologize in advance for any technical glitches on the site. My blogging habits have evolved over the past year and, frankly, I’m not sure if Typepad has evolved with me. So far it seems good, and the clarity of the old site design still seems to make sense to me. I may make some changes, however, as we move forward and will be sure to let you know along the way.
Also, to those who know me and my writing habits: type edits are always appreciated when caught by readers with better eyes for detail than myself. Please feel free to note edits in the comments. All I ask is that you do it as briefly as possible. No drama, please. Typos do not mean an author is unprofessional or lacks character and telling me something along those lines will have zero impact on the future of typos on this site. I do my best.
Formalities completed–next post will take up the substance at hand: Occupy Wall Street.
