Shameless Self-promotion Sunday
Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 12 years ago, in 2011, on the World Wide Web.
It’s Sunday Sunday Sunday. Time to get Shameless Shameless Shameless. You know the deal. What have you been up to this week? Write anything? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments. Or fire away about anything else you might want to talk about.

M-I-C-K-E-Y, M-A-U-S-E-R? This week I peeked behind the pink plastic curtain of the torture-entertainment complex at http://www.thebigjewel.com. You’ll like what I found, because it was tested intensively in nation-wide focus groups.

I officiated at a wedding in Agoura Lake, California, and was interviewed by Corey Moore on Voices of Radical Dissent about The Conscience of an Anarchist.

I’ve started working my way through the debate between Proudhon and Jeanne Deroin on “the woman question,” translating as I go. I posted Deroin’s first critical letter from L’Opinion des Femmes (1849), just prior to her political candidacy, which seems to have kicked off the real feud. I’m headed on a two-day library roadtrip tomorrow, to track down microfilm of The Agitator and some André Léo material that appeared there (and whatever else may be there.) The “Black and Red Feminism” project is a nice break from the writings on property, and the research is giving me a much better sense of how the specifically feminist projects in 19th century France connected to the rest of the socialist movement. Apparently minor figures appear much more significant when you step outside a narrow version of radical history that still privileges a few “key” thinkers and associations. At the same time, digging into the critiques of Proudhon makes it clear that the nastiness was not always one-sided.
I’ve been binding facsimile copies of Proudhon’s works in French, from the Lacroix edition, just so I have them on my bookshelves for easy reference, and testing the limits of what I can bind without specialized bookbinding tools. I’ve worked my way up to volumes of about 400 pages, and, with care, I think I can manage 500 or more without sacrificing the quality of the binding.
