crooked timber / crooked timbers project: i'm confused
via CRTNET, i learned about the crooked timbers project, "a group of communication educators, researchers and practitioners committed to fostering a 'social constructionist' understanding of communication as the primary process for creating and sustaining better social worlds."
great. i'm all for projects! and i'm all for scholars and practitioners coming together to share knowledge! and i'm all for creating and sustaining better social worlds!
but why the name?
for the last few years, crooked timber has been one of the most visited academic blogs around. what gives?
