Do I want copyright on these pages?
A lot of other academic bloggers are getting that by now. Jill has had it for a while, Lisbeth just got it, Lars just got it.
Let's go back and review what this is. It's a way for me to update my friends, to let my hands write around my real work, to store links which I might or might not use... mainly, this blog is the excess of my intellectual life (and sometimes the garbage). While I will track down and do nasty things to whoever tries to claim they wrote my academic papers or my thesis, these are the left-overs or the surplus, and if somebody else finds value in it, well, at least I trust their source of information!
