Not bad save for a couple of date errors: Discordianism was developed/invented in the late fifties and the first edition of the Principia Discordia was published in 1958 or 1959. Someone here figured out which, but I have no idea which thread that was in. Telarus might remember?

Oh, and you might want to throw in a mention of Discordianism's much better-known offshoot, the Church of the Subgenius.

All good advice, I'll jump on that today.

It seems your work will consist of two parts: an interview (life history) and ethnographic observation (participant observation).

Do you have any formal training on the social sciences?

Afraid not. I will have two journalism courses under my belt by the time I get started. Any recommended reading?

I can pass on a message to St. Mae if you want.

Who's Kassanine? I've never heard of them!

In Portland, I would suggest also interviewing Johnny Brainwash and Danny Chaoflux.

Oooh yes! I'll get onto them.

Kasasanine I read an article interviewing her, linked from this forum even, I think. She's part of the Austistic Self-Advocacy thing in Portland. I stumbled on her profile twice on social networking pages. Now, of course, I can't find her.

If you get to Norway, I'm interested in being interviewed! I'll most likely have a spare bedroom available.
