To reiterate, we are#notNFM: not this blog, FB page A new faculty majority, twitter streams nor other blogs and social media sites tentatively designated Precarious Faculty Rising (PFR). These pages are part of an open, informal network of precarious faculty information, support and advocacy sites — NOT an organization!
Please revisit the following posts: "on recent social media changes" December 15, 2013; "blog updates—new pages & other confusion mitigation" December 18, 2013; and "#PFR network: blog & #socialmedia directions" January 15, 2014
We are all working toward a common goal, just on different tracks. Cooperation and coordinating efforts make more sense than conflict and competition — let's leave that behind us in the realm of higher ed hierarchy and #badmin that we want to change.

Quick Note: new thread, whatever
You are cordially invited to visit & comment on our (NFM's) new blog thread just for comments. Like the proverbial floating crap game, posts move down as new ones are posted, but I'll try to remember to re-stick the post back to the top of the page every now and again while considering other options. For now though, here it is: just comment under the identity of your choice. Anonymity guaranteed and always an option.
What is it? An experiment, a work in progress, whatever you choose to make of it. Go alone with me here. Humor me. I'm experimenting so want to start out open ended and see where it takes us. Will it be the (hand or other) writing on the wall, another iteration of _____ (fill in the blank with preferred designation) narratives or something else altogether? Call it the whatever thread. Should more specific guidelines become necessary, we can set them together.
Suggestions invited, questions answered, friends and strangers alike welcomed, trolls ejected.
