About the Blog Name

Albion's Seedling is a reference to an important book, David Hackett Fischer's Albion's Seed . This book has had an enormous effect on my thinking and writing. People are only now beginning to think through the implications of this work. More about this book, and others that have influenced me, can be found in my on-line bibliography

Blogeo Ergo Sum

My blog, and welcome to it!

This is the launch of Albion's Seedling, an occasional and entirely personal web log by James C. Bennett. This is to say, the blog has no affiliation with any other person or organization, including any of the organizations I am affiliated with. (If you're curious about those I do give links to them.) Its intent is to reflect personal opinion, give links to my various writings and other writings of interest, and whatever else I choose to do with it. I have no idea how frequently I'll be able to post; the whole thing is an experiment. But then the blogosphere is an experiment itself, so I guess that's appropriate.
