A year ago, I was on sabbatical writing a couple of articles on technology ethics. One of the great things about academia is the fact that people engage in serious conversation and are willing to put work into understanding one another’s perspectives. We write books and journal articles so that we can figure out how the heck the world works and—in my field—how to create a more human and just society.
The down side is that this conversation takes ages. One of those articles still hasn’t been published yet. The other only took 16 months to publish—and that was positively speedy. The glacial pace drives me crazy. So, I wanted to see if I could move the ideas and the conversation along a bit faster. That’s why I started Rewiring Virtue. One year and 112 posts later, I think things have worked out pretty well. I certainly have been able to do a lot of thinking and learning about the mediated life. And I’ve been fortunate that folks have found it interesting.
Thank you for being my conversation partners.
