Adding BuddyStream to our site would make Irregular Times part of the problem. We would be opening up the lives of political activists to increased military surveillance through the NSA. [...]
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times. Welcome to the irregular times.
You may have noticed that things have changed a bit here at Irregular Times today. The look of our web site has changed a bit, as has the content. So what’s going on?

It’s supposed to be helpful and friendly and all, but unfortunately every [...]
Pssst. If you enter the coupon code “fireworks” at checkout when you buy one of our ethically-made-in-the-USA t-shirts from Skreened, you’ll get 15% off the cost. That comes out to $3-$4 off per shirt, a pretty good deal. The coupon will work through the entire month of July.
My instinct is to conclude that it would be a mistake to try to adopt Facebook features, just because Facebook has been successful with them. [...]
At the top is Theodiclus Locke, Mr. Odd Clock, our long-lived irregular man character, now in sharper focus. He’s still got a little bit of graininess around the edges. [...]
Irregular Times has a new design. Give us your feedback. [...]
It’s up to those who have retained the flexibility of smallness to do their part by writing the small stories that never have gotten coverage in the big presses. [...]
As we continue to ramp up our I Voted For You, But… project to collect Obama voters’ expressions of personal dissent and progressive activists’ plans for collective protest, we’ve taught ourselves how to write RSS feeds. As a result, we’re able to share with you a new RSS feed of progressive activist events. If you [...]
