Alf Rehn directs his readers to

my favorite gang of theorists I do not agree with at all over at Organizations and Markets (fun blog, and I have a great deal of respect for them, even though we are as far apart in thinking as people in the kinda-the-same-field-although-you-could-be-forgiven-for-thinking-otherwise can be — I even like reading Nicolai Foss’s rants, bless his little hardliner heart).

But why does he think Nicolai has a heart?

    My God, they found me!

    Heh. Jocularity and ribbing aside, keep up the excellent work guys. We may not see eye to eye on all things, but I give credit where it’s due. Solid work, serious intellectual endeavors, and an attitude to boot. There’s too little of it in this day and age, and I celebrate it even when I disagree with it. And give Nicolai a big postmodern hug from me!

    Thanks Alf, that’s very kind. We do try to keep up with the literature from a variety of perspectives, even the postmodern ones. But I have to confess that I found your comment via blogosphere’s wonderful trackback system. :-)
