Should junior faculty blog? I agree with the idea that junior faculty should blog about their research, which Drezner calls "an unalloyed good". But I can't imagine that adjuncts blogging about the stress of finding a t-track job is helpful to them, and probationary faculty are probably wise to keep their heads down. Since I'm tenured and in that quasipseudosorta role of half prof-half chair, I get some unique perspectives that I think are helpful. But to be tenured and decide to blog just to piss and moan about academia ... dude, that's boring.
OK, have a presentation to get ready for and I substitute for Mrs. S's solo in JTLM tonight, literally running from one gig to the other. Back tomorrow.
