Tightly Wound comments on academic blogging

Tightly Wound: Oh, Dear.: "The 'Oh dear! We might get blogged about! And people outside our influence might find out what we're really up to!' reaction. Imagine! New faculty might be autonomous! They might have--gasp--opinions! Or personal preferences! Or they might not be willing to shut up and go along like a good little peon! The horror! The nerve!

In other words, if you wanna be an academic, you'd better shut your mouth and get on the reservation, baby. No freedom of expression for you!

Unless you blog anonymously. And for the love of God, don't put your web address on your resume."
