I had no idea, when I first wrote “The Death of Expertise” as a blog post here, that it would go viral. It was picked up by The Federalist, and was the most-read post of its first year in publication. (And when I say “most-read,” I mean a lot of views.) I started getting letters from all over the world, including requests to republish it or translate it into other languages.
And now, thanks to Oxford University Press, it’s going to appear as a book. (Assuming I sit down and actually write the darn thing, of course.) So, thanks to everyone who read it, tweeted it, posted it, and translated it, because it’s been a great year or so of discussion with you. If you have more anecdotes to share, don’t hesitate to post them or mail them to me.
In the meantime, I’ll be slogging away on the book, which if all goes well should appear in mid to late 2016. Until then, activity here on the blog will be a tad light, but if you’re looking for new pieces by me, check my usual haunts at The Federalist, The National Interest, and even a new piece at The Daily Beast.
