Good news and bad news

With regards to the scheduling of the AALS session on blogging and scholarship tomorrow today, I see both good news and bad news.

The good news is that it doesn’t conflict with either Dan’s privacy panel or Gordon and Scott’s Wal-Mart panel. Whew! (It does, alas, clash with the “12 Angry Men” panel, meaning that 8:30 is the hour of “Solum or Solan — pick your favorite Lawrence.”)

The bad news is that the session starts at 8:30 . . .

. . . in the morning. Yikes!

Who forgot to tell the organizers that we bloggers need our sleep? (Markel? Didn’t we task that one to you?) Does no one realize that bloggers like to party ’til the wee hours of the morning? Or that any attempt to extract information from a blogger in the early morning is likely to result in gibberish or worse? I’m not making this up — note that one recent attempt to get information from a blogger in the early morning resulted in a cherry-picked list of bad puns. Alas, I suppose I have no choice but to bite the bullet and attend the panel — and then to blog mercilessly about any evidence of panelists in pajamas, snores among the audience (I realize, these are not limited to the 8:30 sessions), or bad puns.

Oh, and Miriam, you should definitely remember to attend the privacy panel later on. You will So-Love what those speakers have to say.

  1. A Wal Mart panel?? Damn – the left just doesn’t like any positive force that doesn’t emanate from government, does it?. (On a day-to-day basis, I’d argue that Wal Mart’s contributions to the general good far exceeds government agencies such as Education or HUD)

    Reviewing who is on the panel, I’m going to guess that Professor Smith will come off as a Wal Mart apologist amidst what I am admittedly guessing/stereotyping as a group of bashers. The audience will cheer the latter on. How far off am I?

    Pretty far off, actually.
