Friday Quick Hits and Varia
It’s supposed to touch 80 degrees today here in beautiful and tropical Grand Forks. So a few quick hit and varia on a sunny Friday:
- Another blog post on blogging in the academy. Good grief.
- New York Magazine profile of Nick Denton of Gawker.
- Sam Fee has some good thoughts on Archaeology and the New Media over at Arranged Delirium.
- David Pettegrew’s Corinthian Matters reports more on the Corinth in Contrast conference.
- Make plans now to come to the Northern Great Plains History Conference. My paper is at 9 am on Thursday.
- Remember David Pettegrew will present the 2nd Annual Cyprus Research Fund Lecture at 4 pm on October 21 in the East Asia Room of the Chester Fritz Library. Here’s an abstract of his talk.
- The second test of India vs. Australia cannot be more exciting than the first.
- Big news today, apparently, from the University of North Dakota. I have no idea what it is, but I hope they use the word “game changer”.
- What I’m listening to: Lee “Scratch” Perry, Roast Fish, Collie Weed, and Corn Bread and with the Upsetters, Super Ape.
- What I’m reading: Michèle Lamont, How Professors think: inside the curious world of academic judgement. (Cambridge, MA 2009).
