A Word from our Higher Powers: The MLA Seventh Edition

There is hardly a student in the United States whose work remains wholly untouched by the influence of the Modern Language Association. Whether a fledgling upstart or a seasoned scholar, anyone doing academic work in the humanities has been guided through the massive collaborative effort of the MLA....

The Christian Web Conference: Incarnating Digital Relationships

Last weekend’s Christian Web Conference put flesh on the disembodied personas of several well-known online Christians.  While internet technologies continue to help people form increasingly complex relationships online, nothing has yet replaced the richly unique dynamic of face-to-face meetings...

The New Evangelical Outpost

In the very first post on EO—in October 2003—I noted that the inspiration for this blog was Hugh Hewitt’s book, In, But Not Of: A Guide to Christian Ambition and the Desire to Influence the World. At the time I wrote: This blog was inspired by #32 (Start and maintain your own Web log (blog))....

Twitter: Narcissism Meets Networking

Is twitter the next best marketing and networking tool, or merely another way for that annoying guy at work to brag about his mundane life? It’s really up to you. Dustin’s post about the iphone-skype marriage reminded me of what Os Guinness had to say at a recent conference on Francis Schaeffer....

Better Than Fiction

Has our culture lost the ability to foster honest public discourse? Sometimes it appears so.

Joe Carter’s Commonplace

I hope the new team will forgive me for jumping in, but I want to promote my new tumbleblogging venture, Joe Carter’s Commonplace. Since I do most of my long-form writing a Culture11, I needed a place to post 33 Things-type material. I update it daily so please stop by and check in often. (Not...

Possibility Junkies

By Ken Myers Ideas, we are frequently told, have consequences. We are less often encouraged to reflect on the equally significant if more elusive relationship of ideas to their antecedents. Ideas come from somewhere, and they are able to take up residence in our lives because they find friendly surroundings....

Culture11 and the Future of EO

A long time ago I learned that it was vanity to apologize for not blogging. As one longtime blogger famously said, “I hate to be the one to tell you … but we will survive. Really. With support of my family, I think I will be able to get by the next day or two without an update from ‘YourDailyNanoBlogPundit.com.” Still,...

Make Your Message Be What Matters:
A Lesson from a McDonald’s Happy Meal

The following guest post is by Abraham Piper, web content editor for Desiring God ministries and author of one of my favorite new blogs, 22 Words. My son brought home a toy from McDonald’s yesterday. It’s a little plastic singer named “Hippie Harmony” that plays a 6-note tune...
