More coverage of (the dangers of) academic blogging. Some people still ask, "What is the purpose of broadcasting one's unfiltered thoughts to the whole wired world?" If such a person had followed this forum over the ten years of its existence, they would have no such question. And they understand why running the risk of being wrong, or appearing stupid, in public is well worth the reward. Indeed, from my perspective, Crooked Timber's Henry Farrell has the more accurate take: "For these academics, blogging isn't a hobby; it's an integral part of their scholarly identity. They may very well be the wave of the future." That's where I think I am. The future.
