Trials and Tribble-ations

I just couldn't resist this opportunity to use the second Star Trek tribble episode title in a post (having used the first here). The Chronicle of Higher Education's "Ivan Tribble" is back, to remind us that there are some departments we really don't want to work in (i.e., his). He's once again out to save academics from themselves, telling us not to blog because it might reveal something that someone else doesn't like. My advice: worry more about your professional writings' impact on your career. Not that I blame Prof. Tribble for using a pseudonym...

Much better commentary about this matter can be found here, here, here, and here.

  1. Right. He may be right, I don't know... but you nail it when you suggest it is probably not the right thing to worry about.

    It will be a sad day when review boards pass over my scientific papers and focus on my blog.
