An example to emulate (if only I knew how)

Richard Posner, who popped to the blogosphere surface because he has started a blog with Gary Becker – a blog that has the distinction of being heavily subscribed while only the test message was up – is a very interesting individual. Not only is his written production astounding – 4 books, 30 academic papers, 27 shorter papers, and 171 legal opinions in 2 years – but he does all the writing himself, and has even found time to write a week’s diary for Slate (albeit in 2002). Off the scale.
An interesting aspect of the new blog was that Kieran at Crooked Timber thought it an elaborate hoax – though I am beginning to suspect some tongue in cheek here, especially since Lawrence Lessig has endorsed the new blog. Anyway, blogging is getting serious.
