Technorati claims to be tracking 53.8 million blogs, so I am not exactly a trendsetter in establishing my own blog. But through my years at Catallaxy I can make some claim to be a veteran Australian blogger, and I hope some of the people who read me there might read me here – and that my pro-civility comments policy will encourage ‘lurkers’ who were put off commenting there by the less-than-perfect manners of a few of the regulars to do so here. Aside from that, I expect my posts here to be similar in subject and style to my Catallaxy posts. There are a couple below, one of which is an updated version of a guest post I wrote at Stephen Kirchner’s Institutional Economics.
I’m still struggling with the technology – I have already seen more than my fair share of ‘500 internal server error’ (whatever that means) messages – and haven’t figured out how to get the comments sidebar going. But I hope the site’s appearance will improve over time.
