Top Posts of 2011

2011 saw the move of this blog to Patheos and the transfer of the archives of older posts from the blog’s old home on Blogger. A retrospective seems to be in order, as the end of my first (partial) year at Patheos draws near. I won’t list top 10s, but will instead mention a few [Read More...]

The Transition is Complete!

One last remaining aspect of the move from Blogger to Patheos has finally been completed. The archives from the old site are now here, and the old address http://exploringourmatrix.blogspot.com now redirects visitors to the blog’s current location. I would be very grateful if readers could help check that the transfer has gone smoothly by poking [Read More...]

Prove John Hobbins Wrong: Criticize Patheos!

I shared a link in my last post, but I think this deserves a post of its own. John Hobbins has shared why he can’t recommend Patheos. I can understand some of his points, while others I think are off target. But one in particular seems way off base, the idea that by joining Patheos, [Read More...]

A Hundred Posts, A Thousand Comments

I’d say that Exploring Our Matrix is off to a pretty good start here at its new location on the Patheos site. Today it reached a hundred posts and exceeded a thousand comments. While I think that this suggests that all is well, milestones like this provide a good opportunity for reflection and feedback. So [Read More...]

The Biblioblog Top 10 (May 2011)

Thanks to Daniel McClellan for posting the Top 10 Biblioblogs by vote for this past month, and thank you to everyone who voted for Exploring Our Matrix, which came in #1 again! Thanks for following the blog to its new location! A newcomer to the top 10, right there at the bottom, is Jim West. [Read More...]

Vote for Your Favorite Biblioblog!

Everyone has presumably heard by now that Unsettled Christianity is the new #1 in the biblioblogosphere, as far as Alexa ranking is concerned. Sadly, the Alexa ranking system cannot differentiate blogs that share a domain, as those at Patheos do, and so this may well be my last time in the top 50. But you [Read More...]

There’s a new King in town (Biblioblog Rankings for May 2011)

Congratulations to Joel Watts and the other bloggers at Unsettled Christianity who have also unseated the reigning champion of the biblioblog wars, Jim West. Exploring Our Matrix came in at #3 – probably for the last time, since Alexa doesn’t rank separate blogs on this site. See the full list of top biblioblogs here. [Read more...]

An Introduction to Biblioblogs

Having moved to this new site, I suppose there is another thing I should explain about this blog. It is a biblioblog. I know librarians who blog use that term too, but the most authoritative source in the known universe (which is being considered as a candidate to be declared a UNESCO heritage site) says [Read More...]

Feedburner

I have set up Feedburner with the feed from this blog so that you should be able to use Feedburner and follow Exploring Our Matrix now and anywhere it may go in the future, without having to make any changes yourself. The feed http://feeds.feedburner.com/ExploringOurMatrix/ should work. If it doesn’t, and even if it does, let [Read More...]

From The Archives

The kind technology people at Patheos are working on getting the archives from the Blogger site moved here. In the mean time, I think I’ll start doing something I did from time to time on the old site as well, namely post something “From the Archives” (which I’ll label as such), an older post which, [Read More...]

The Matrix and Gnosticism in the News

There’s a reason why I called my blog “Exploring Our Matrix” – it started as a venue for exploring the intersection of religion and science fiction, which at that point was still more of a side interest than something I taught about and published on. That topic continues to make the news and get attention [Read More...]
