Observations, Interpretations, and Models

Construction of Themes: Early Papers:
These early papers are not presented as “the right way” to build interpretations from data. They are examples of what I’ve done and how my published papers came to be what they are. The extensions of introduction and conclusions in “Making Jokes” shows a stable core with a modestly developing interpretation. The changes to “Introduction to Writing” show compression in selection of examples. The Tic Tac Toe studies show gradual development of ideas for interpretation.

When facing a daunting task
Presenting these sequences of papers makes an argument. It is important to get started and do your (inadequate?) best, then later, do better. Why was “Making Jokes and Learning” the first paper of The Intimate Study? It is important to enjoy your work: I thought the issues were serious, and I found the material hilarious — so it did not matter to me that the paper was not published for twenty years. It was a very good start… and that paper remains one I offer to interested people outside the field or to those whose commitment is a lot less intense than my own. It shows “where I’m coming from” and “where all this is going.”
