Jason, nice rhetorical move in your Glom comment. You reframed the question--puttting those legal advocacy skills to work in the name of empiricism. Hey, we all go down with the ship if necessary. bh.

My comment to the Glom post is at:


I am also skeptical of the original post, but it seems the existing comments have expressed this skepticism quite well. I think it might be a more fruitful endeavor to discuss how junior scholars might reduce the roadblocks to empirical work, rather than giving them information on the potential costs. This blog has offered suggestions before:

Guys --

No worries; worst-case, I can imagine there will be more than a few political science departments out there that might hire you, post-tenure denial...


Bill Ford


It's even worse: At a AALS panel on blogs, there was also some suggestion that untenured people shouldn't be blogging. So, it's over.

Michael's comment to the original Comglomerate thread offered some measured, careful advice on this issue (very Heise-ian). My response was more skeptical of the original post: http://www.theconglomerate.org/2006/07/should_young_sc.html#c19910949

Jason and Bill, we may have tied our fates to a highly speculative venture. Oh well, there is no turning back now.
