I'm honored to be chosen the author of the fortnight at Inkwell.Vue, the book discussion conference/chat at The Well. You are all invited to come over and read the polylogue. Well members can ask questions live and non-members can submit questions through the moderators.
I'm inviting you to check out what a cool place it is to chat about MBB for several reasons. First, The Well is, I believe, the oldest continuous general purpose on-line community. Second, the concentration of interesting people on-line there is unsurpassed -- the anti-MyPlace (that is, if you put The Well & MyPlace onto a single server, there would be a tear in the space-time continuum that even Captain Janeway couldn't bully her way out of). Third, the conversation leader is Stephanie Vardavas, who was MLB's staff attorney for a decade and has been involved in the legal and business side of sports for 27 years; and like me, she's a big fan of The Blade. She knows a ton about the inner workings of baseball as an institution, a preciously rare domain expert.
I encourage you to participate as a reader; join us.
To submit a question, send it to the mods via the e-mail account inkwell at their domain. Which is well.com .
BACKGROUND ON THE WELL
(from their home page) The WELL is a cherished and acclaimed destination for conversation and discussion. For twenty years it has captivated intelligent, creative people. It is widely known as the primordial ooze where the online community movement was born — where Howard Rheingold first coined the term "virtual community." Over the last two decades, it's been described as "the world's most influential online community" in a Wired Magazine cover story, and "the Park Place of email addresses" by John Perry Barlow. It's won Dvorak and Webby Awards, inspired songs and novels, and almost invisibly influences modern culture.
