In related africanist news, you might, also, note that Keith Hart seems to have made a bit of a renewed commitment to his blog at the Memory Bank site and has just announced, there, his participation in a new Open Source initiative put together by British Africanists. You will find the announcement under his really inspirational post The Human Economy at his blog thememorybank.co.uk
Finally, something those of us in the land of no access to sources can read for free!

Thanks for your comment. Yes, Keith Hart has become a very active blogger (although he posts more papers or articles than blog posts).
The “Open source initiative” you mention, is not an initiative by Africanists, but by the ASA (Association of Social Anthropologists of the UK and Commonwealth). Their initiative ASA Online was announced somewhen last year and hasn’t been successful so far. Keith Hart is the first one to publish a paper there.
Sorry, I see ASA and think Africa (African Studies Association) but, of course, you are correct. And I had the site up and was reading his piece and it still didn’t quite click. Thanks for the corrective. I only wish there were greater reason to hope.
