clap clap blog: we have moved

Steven Johnson's been nice enough to write me about my critique, and promises a response at some point on his blog. So, watch that space!

ADDENDUM: He also reminded me of the bit about Dickens in Everything Bad, which I neglected to point out as awesome. I won't spoil it for you (I trust you're all going to read the book at some point), but if you've ever been annoyed by someone bemoaning the state of modern literature by pointing out that in Dickens' day, crowds thronged New York harbor to hear the latest news about Little Nell, and where is the mass audience for great books today blah blah blah, you'll be gratified by his critique.
