Although the econ blog concept didn’t end up working out quite as well as I’d envisioned, I think Twitter is actually a better vehicle for that. However, I have noticed there is a good deal of continuing interest in Game theory, in fact, more than I can reasonably bring myself to devote to it on this blog. Since I’m presently working on a Game-related project, I think the time has come to set up a separate blog devoted entirely to the subject. My idea is to have seven bloggers, of which I will be one, each presenting the perspective of the one of the categories I have described in the socio-sexual hierarchy: Alpha, Sigma, Beta, Delta, Gamma, and Omega… plus one ♀. I’m open to bloggers who already have blogs, there are two or three few people I’d very much like to participate, but in general I’m more interested in those who aren’t already blogging regularly.
If you’re interested, please mention it here, then email me a sample post along with your age, marital status, religious faith, and which perspective you think you could accurately represent. I would prefer a mix of married and single, religious and irreligious, older and younger. Note that I’m not interested in exercises in self-justification, such as explaining why you’re really a “stealth alpha” even though your last date was with a transsexual streetwalker in Las Vegas five years ago nor do I want Tucker Max fiction cribbed from old editions of Penthouse Forum. Roissy already has the “I am Alpha, hear me roar” aspect of the subject well-covered, so what I’d like this new blog to bring to the table is both the painful stories of the past and the accounts of transformation, both successful and unsuccessful, from the present.
I’m still going to discuss the subject here as I have been doing, but I will also post there several times per week. Please don’t volunteer unless you can reasonably commit to posting three times per week since a good blog should average around three posts per day. I don’t know if anyone will be interested in blogging, or for that matter, reading such a blog, but I figured it doesn’t hurt to throw the idea out there to you all.
In tangentially related news, it’s time to clean up the blogroll. So many are now defunct that my plan is to nuke them all and only keep those bloggers who tell me they are still active. Let me know if you want to stay on the blogroll or be added to it in the comments here with a) the blog name and b) the URL.
