Textbook Bias

One often hears claims of textbook bias. While listening to such a claim, I mindlessly checked to see who owned the domain

Turns out, the domain was available.

I get a free name with my hosting account; so I registered it.

I really don't have an idea what to do with the domain. I figured it would be an interesting case study in an evolutionary design approach to the web site. In this approach, one starts with a topic and sees where the conversation leads.

So, what I've done so far is make a change log and slapped up an ad page. (There's gold in them thar textbooks). I haven't put up a homepage yet, as I really haven't ever thought about this topic before.

I will probably just slap up a few window dressing essays and might make a form for user submitted content. I want to figure out how OpenID works before soliciting info.

At worst the domain purchase is an excuse to read a few textbooks.
