So I’ve been doing this for seven years and luckily can count on one hand the number of times that I’ve messed up pretty badly, but that last post was a whopper.
Not only did I confuse Mark Federman (who I mostly agree with) with Mark Bauerline (who I mostly disagree with), I actually fell on the side of the latter in that post. Go figure.
Suffice to say, I screwed up big time. And I am experiencing a personal teachable moment. Not that I would change anything in terms of what I said about the essay. But this realization is providing some interesting reflection.
(Thanks to an e-mail from Jay Hurvitz for catching the switch and being very gracious in his e-mail pointing it out.)
