I am off to Minneapolis to give a ‘works in progress’ talk to the law faculty. Usually, when I go places I try to bring something nearly finished even if it’s touted as a ‘half-baked’ talks series. This time, maybe for the first time, I’m bring a true work in progress, which does make me slightly nervous.
It’s an article I wrote a strong first draft of some time ago (quite a long time ago in Internet years), and then set aside because I thought something was missing. I’ve started updating it now, with an eye to finally getting it out the door. But I still think it’s missing something.
Maybe talking it over with a room full of smart folks will help me find that missing ingredient. Or maybe I’ll just look silly.
It’s a very short visit — I get back to Miami around midnight Thursday — but I gather I will need my coat.
