The blog forum is on. I've received a few submissions, so what I'll do is post the 1st beginning on Mon. 6/16, then invite comments, responses, and discussion for a few days. Rinse and repeat. Please spread the word far and wide.
Let me emphasize here that the "submission deadline" is rolling, so feel free to send other things in any time, even after the longer posts start to go live. You can do so either via email or simply as a comment somewhere on the blog.
UPDATE: We now have 4 entries. 2 for next week (Mon. & Thurs.), then 2 the following (Mon. & Thurs. again). Keep 'em coming in.
