  • Ending the Fogknife support experiment (February 18, 2020)

    A housekeeping note: I have quietly ended the experiment to entice charitable giving among Fogknife’s readership with the promise of free stickers. Six months after launching the program, I have received exactly zero responses.

  • How to support Fogknife (August 3, 2019)

  • This blog is now called Fogknife (January 5, 2017)

    When I launched this blog two years ago, I wouldn’t let myself believe I’d attend to it with any regularity, and as such didn’t spend much energy on thinking of a title. So “jmac’s blog” it was, with the URL blog.jmac.org. An acceptable URL, but a terrible, forgettable not-title. With my first post of 2017, I change both.

  • Introducing Starble (November 1, 2015)

    Each post on this blog, when viewed on the website (versus an RSS reader or the like), now concludes with a little button containing a star and a number.

  • About this blog (April 11, 2015)

    What I write here is not my teaching, but my study; it is not a lesson for others, but for me. And yet it should not be held against me if I publish what I write. What is useful to me may also by accident be useful to another. Moreover, I am not spoiling anything, I am only using what is mine. And if I play the fool, it is at my expense and without harm to anyone. For it is a folly that will die with me, and will have no consequences.

Thinking on this, I realized I had an opportunity to say something nice about someone you probably never knew (nor did I, really), so I will.
