, written by Jeremy. Read the commentary.

I haven’t been blogging long, but throughout these novice days I’ve picked some of the fads of the craft. One is: Blog it once and never revise it.

I understand why you wouldn’t want liberal revision. Changing the blog threatens the relevance of any previous comments. That’s no good for anyone.

But, on the other hand, good ideas take time to percolate. One of the great benefits of blogging ideas is that others can help in the percolation.

In an effort to resolve fads with practicality, I’ve devised the wheelbarrow experiment. Below is the first of the experiments; hopefully many more will follow. In all cases the wheelbarrow will hold unsynthesised but related material that is gathered over time. This facilitates ongoing research, opens the topic for discussion early, and acts as a holding tank for blossoming thoughts. Subsequent “official” posts will reference the wheelbarrow and any appropriate comments.

Any advice on unforeseen pitfalls in this proposal?
