Hey Gang- I hope your Thursday is going well. Since the last time we spoke, I’ve gotten a bit older (from 36 to 37) and I want to publicly thank everybody for the birthday wishes. I appreciate the entire lot of you. I’m dealing with a bit of a cold today, leaving the better part of my brain unavailable for coherent and reasoned pieces. With that said (and trying to keep a little bit on topic) last year I wrote a piece about publishing using a construction metaphor. You can read it here.
Earlier this week, Slate had a piece from a real life contractor. Unfortunately, he didn't use publishing as a metaphor for construction. You should read it anyway. Here. Compare. Contrast.
