Thanks for visiting the “new” seanpatrickgriffin.net. The site experienced a server failure from which we have not yet been able to recover much site-specific material.
You’ll note there is essentially a two-year gap in material/posts, from June 2011 to September 2013 (i.e., the entire life span of the website!). We are still attempting to locate missing data, including and especially analyses of current (and often ongoing) events relating to my research agendas. A brief look at the respective Facebook pages for Black Brothers, Inc: The Violent Rise and Fall of Philadelphia’s Black Mafia (Milo, 2005/07) and Gaming the Game: The Story Behind the NBA Betting Scandal and the Gambler Who Made It Happen (Barricade, 2011) offers a sense of how much material has been lost (i.e, many of the posts from the former site were offered in synopsis form on the Facebook pages, complete with links to this site). Visitors of the former site will note we have recreated the same template, which most – including the host! – found incredibly user-friendly. Whatever pre-2013 materials are currently found on the site are simply imported posts from my various blogs. Importantly, please know these may include outdated links and/or embedded media, and in many cases there have been formatting issues as we have incorporated data from outside sources. Also note that as we find posts from the “old” site, these will be uploaded not based on importance but based on convenience. Please bear with us as we attempt in earnest to bring this interactive resource back to life. Thanks as always for your interest and support!
