The New York Times recently ran a piece called The Professor as Open Book, about professors (across all disciplines) sharing personal information on their blogs and social networking sites. How much is too much?
It was just last June when University of Colorado law professor Paul Campos wrote in a tongue-in-cheek way about being perhaps the last law professor in America without a blog.
You’ll see precious little personal info on this blog. I only got around to adding my picture a week or so ago. And that’s not exactly private in any event. Like many legal blogs, this blog functions in part as a marketing tool. Having my picture in the sidebar is no different than having it in the county bar directory.
