In early 2009, the writers of Snarkmarket called for ideas about how we as a culture could expand on the idea of a liberal arts degree—what would we include, if could design our own College for the Future? My chapter for the book, The New Home Economics, inspired me to start my blog of the same name.
The book was published in July 2009, with a promise that a free digital version would be released as soon as all 200 hardcopies sold. Eight hours later, it became available as a free download. I am honored to have been a part of this project.
