I wrote a paper that just came out as a book chapter. One of my co-authors is Kyle Bishop. His office is in the building next door. And yet, we met face-to-face once on the entire project (the first time we’d ever talked to each other), and we did the rest through e-mail and Google Docs. It was really one of the easiest co-authoring relationships I’ve ever had.
But I can’t beat what they’ve done at EconBrowser. James Hamilton and Menzie Chen have been working on their blog together for 10 years, and they met for the first time this past week.
Most people are surprised to learn that although Menzie and I have been working as a cyberspace team and have been in nonstop email communication with each other every week for the last 10 years, we had never met in person until this week. Fate finally brought us together in non-cyberspace reality when we converged in Boston for seminars and discussions hosted by the National Bureau of Economic Research.
Steve ought to put together a Google Scholar page before his soon-to-be-former employer erases his scholarly presence from their sites … because … you know … it’s the employer that makes the scholar, not the scholars that make the university. Anyway, here’s what I found with a direct search for SH Karlson on Google Scholar.
Steve is the sole author of Cold Spring Shops. He’s made noises from time to time about giving up blogging. I’m one person who hopes he doesn’t. I’m sure there’s some double-counting involved, but Google says this blog linked to Cold Spring Shops 319 times over the last 10 years.
Ellipsis … is a series of dots that usually indicate an intentional omission of a word, sentence or whole section from the original text being quoted, and though necessary for syntactical construction, is not necessary for comprehension. Ellipses can also be used to indicate an unfinished thought or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence … When placed at the beginning or end of a sentence, the ellipsis can also inspire a feeling of melancholy or longing. The ellipsis calls for a slight pause in speech or any form of text, and can be used to suggest a tense or awkward momentary silence.
Regarding the meme circulating from an “economic historian” that private investment in capital isn’t important, Cold Spring Shops author Stephen Karlson quotes Kids Prefer Cheese’s Mike Munger who wrote this about said historian:
Without any prompting from Cold Spring Shops, he subsequently revises and extends.
*A clarification: Northern Illinois has a number of quite good departments, including econ. But the history department is a doctrinaire marxist ideological chop shop.
I'm not sure the description of History is completely accurate. Professor Livingston surely got onto the culture-studies ride at the right time, but the history department has also been reduced in size and scope over the past 20 years. We do what we can [with] what we have in economics. And we have Quidditch.
