This is blog was originally created by Matthew Shaffer. I started this blog years ago, in a previous career, as a way of forcing myself to think through interesting ideas, debate them with my friends, and provide (I hoped) some useful resources for people Googling the topics I wrote about.
I’m currently a doctoral student at Harvard Business School, and planning to pursue a research career in business-school academia afterwards. I haven’t had time to keep up with this blog during my doctoral program, and doubt that I will in the future. But I’m leaving it up for curious Googlers. It still gives me satisfaction to check the blog stats every few months and find that someone has found some use for it.
