The Situationist

Situationist Staff Favorites for 2007

Posted by The Situationist Staff on December 17, 2007

Marc Scheff ImageSince January, several hundred posts have been published on The Situationist. As 2007 draws to a close, the Situationist Staff thought it was a good time to identify 40 of our favorites over that time period. Narrowing it down to that still-signficant number was harder than it sounds.

We have listed and linked to them below in approximate order of their publication (with authors other than Jon Hanson, Michael McCann, and Situationist Staff listed).

Because our readership has been increasing sharply over this year, we suspect that most of our readers today missed most of the earlier posts. We encourage those readers to explore what they might have missed.

Next week, we hope to poll our readers for a “readers’ choice” award.
