    Doesn’t really matter, because few, if any, people will actually read your articles.

    Neither a fox nor a hedgehog can best describe this blogger. Nothing short of a narcissist – a grandiose view of one’s own talents and a craving for admiration – will suffice. This entry reeks of a craving to be a capital I in his non-accredited little pod.

    I find this piece helpful — something I’ve been wondering about. I’m a fox (scholarly-interests wise), and indulging these various interests is one reason I’m a law prof. If I had to be a hedgehog about an issue I wasn’t into (enough), I’d go back to law practice, where I’d be paid more to write. (And I’d lead CLEs to satisfy the everpresent urge to teach.)

    I’m not sure if my skin is getting thinner, but cowardly, obnoxious, anonymous commenters are starting to get to me. Yes, Dan F is just talking about his and his friends’ careers here… but what’s wrong with thinking about one’s career and writing a brief post about it on a blog by and, to a large extent for, other profs? I’d love a real answer from these commenters…
