Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Leaving on a jet plane...

Well, folks, it's that time again- time for me to go to the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting.* It's a time of fun, festivities, and frolicking in a conference center and it usually precludes most blogging until I return. It's also a time of trying to find affordable coffee between sessions, which usually means mugging someone who just exited that Starbucks line. For the first timers, be sure to check out my handy Conference-English phrase book. For everyone else who is going, you know what you're doing, and I'll see you there. And for those of my readers who have never been to the ASAs and aren't going this year... well, that's too bad. I like to imagine that it's a little like this, only with fewer empire-waist dresses and more objections to unusual sampling procedures:

See you soon!

* Conference theme: "Toward a Sociology of Citizenship". Seriously? Is that a thing now? What's next, the Sociology of my Left Shoe?

If citizenship means participation, support, and engagement in the community, then it seems a perfectly reasonable thing for sociologists to want to study. There's a plausible interest in supporting those things.
