Perennialists and Digressers All,
I am humbled by the amount of support and warmth everyone has shown and the outpouring of appreciation for this project in the wake of my announcement that it is drawing to a close (whether temporary or permanent I do not at this time know). Thank you very, very much for it.
The two big questions I have gotten are whether a.) the site will continue to exist for people to make use of and b.) the YouTube channel will continue to exist. In the wake of so many requests that they remain available, I have decided to leave the Substack for APD up. I will make the YouTube videos unlisted, but create a permanent page on the Substack, entitled “Colloquia,” where links to them can be found so they can continue to be enjoyed.
I suppose the secondary benefit of doing things this way is that if ever the opportunity or energy arises to resume this project, it will be easy enough to do so.
Gratias vobis ago,
Addendum: Given that this is the new plan, I strongly urge all paid subscribers to simply cancel their paid memberships. This applies only to around 70 of you, but all the same, there’s no reason to pay for a free resource that I’m not curating or regularly updating.
Many thanks again for all you’ve done
Thanks for the clarification!
