Ever since Mike and I started Law, Legislation and Lunacy, I’ve been reading other blogs more and more. While my breadth of web literature pales in comparison to Mike’s, a scant review of our colleagues makes me want to change a thing or two about this blog, most notably our subtitle.
Here’s a list of other libertarian blogs—you’ll see what I mean.
-Marginal Revolution: Small steps to a much better world
-Café Hayek: where orders emerge
-History News Network: Because the Past is the Present, and the Future too
-Agoraphilia: The Center for Blurbs in the Public Interest
-Tech Central Station: Where Free Markets Meet Technology (okay, so not so much this one)
I’m fortunate enough to blog at a site that has a clever title (a title we can all credit Mike with) but like everyone else in the world, I’m always looking for progress: we deserve a clever subtitle to go with our kick ass name. As a nod to the grand tapestry of information out there, to the great wealth of tacit and local knowledge, to the millions of minds at work, I ask for your input on a new subtitle. In the words of Michael Polyani, we should let all the avenues of research (or this case, inspiration) be explored—forget the fact that only about six of those millions actually read this thing. The winner gets…um…how about a blog article about them (written by me), though I have no idea what the nature of the article will be about; I’ll try to put it into the context of a libertarian theme or something.
Technically, I haven’t mentioned this to Mike or Ron (surprise guys!) but if they don’t want anything changed, then we can forget the whole thing. No harm, no fowl. But just remember the old Japanese proverb, “The biggest room in the world is the room for improvement.”
