Statistical Update

No, I haven’t died. But I am still recovering from Service-to-the-Department-and-University hell this semester. I can confirm the sage sayings that echo in the halls of academe: 1) you never will have as much free time as a professor as you will in grad school; and 2) your administrative burden will increase when you get promoted from Assistant to Associate prof.

Anywho, I still have lots of blog posts floating around in my head, but those pesky creatures aren’t easily wrangled – and I’m still way behind on other, more substantial, research commitments. In the meantime, I’ve discovered a formula for perpetual blog hits. Add one part criticism of academic publishers (Publishing with an Academic Press), three parts describing how to use Devonthink (see DT tag), and leaven with an Old Sports-As-War metaphor. That will apparently give you 40 visitors and 70 views every day for weeks, even if you post nothing else. Odd how the Internet works.

    Promotion related congratulations!
