1700. Summary and Index for the Last 99 posts

By Kamran Nayeri, January 21, 2015

From the inception of Our Place in the World, I wrote A Word with the Reader column every 99 posts.   My aim was to provide the reader a summary of the previous 99 posts and a hyperlink index to them for easy reference.  Also, I wanted to communicated with the reader on immediate issues facing the world or the part of it I happen to be aware of and concerned with at the time. 

This worked well for a time until I realized that my meager resources in production of OPITW delays posting important articles while I was busy writing the commentary.  A Word with the Reader column became the opposite of what I intend it to be—a ritual and hindrance for smoother production of OPITW mostly because of paucity of human resources not uncommon in emancipatory movements of our time. 

Stating with this column I am limiting the scope of A Word with the Reader to a summary of the previous 99 posts and hyperlink to them for easy reference. Whatever I provided in terms of analysis will appear as separate articles whenever I find the time to write them.  This change will ensure smoother production process for OPITW to make it more regular with up to 10 posts per week.
