How it works
I'm going to prestamp some entries momentarily, with the idea of moving them off the recent posts sidebar as quickly as possible. When we built CCC Online through a Movable Type Installation, one of the things we did was to add a number of static, "template" pages for those places where comments were unnecessary.
On this site, I'm going to want some pages that are relatively static, but still retain feedback possibilities, the ones that will be linked out of the About section. Right now, I'm thinking about pages for an overview of the project, an ongoing book proposal-like document, a tentative table of contents, and a working bibliography that will house not only the texts I've reviewed, but the ones I've yet to get to.
So that's why there's a bunch of new entries that are relatively empty.
