In a very encouraging sign, Week 5 has been the most successful week yet.
- 193 hits, not only the highest yet, but also the third week in a row of triple-digits, indicating a clear shift from the first two weeks of TRP’s existence, which averaged about 50 hits a week.
- A major source of this up-tick has been the expanding importance of social networking sites, from Facebook to Digg to Reddit to some sites I’ve never heard of (feedly and collecta). Many thanks to people who click one of the “share this post” buttons at the bottom of every post.
- There’s also been an increase in the number of comments. Thanks also go out to Marko Budisic, who poses some puzzlers in the comment threads.
Posts this week if you missed them:
- Minimum Wage as Class Politics (about the enduring political meaning and changing social signfiicance of the minimum wage)
- Beyond EEP vs. Broader, Bolder: The Problem With Education “Reform” (about the divisions within the education reform community, and what’s being missed out)
- “Reason Not the Need”: Housing Policy and Jobs (how we can hit two birds with one stone in dealing with our housing and unemployment crises)
