Prof. Juan Cole in the Chronicle of Higher Education:

The question is whether Web-log commentary helps or damages an academic's career. It is a shameful question. Intellectuals should not be worrying about "careers," the tenured among us least of all.

Some background and commentary by 7 other professor/bloggers here. More Cole Fury:

Should I have been silent, published only years later in stolid academic prose in journals locked up in a handful of research libraries? And this for the sake of a "career"? The role of the public intellectual is my career. And it is a hell of a career. I recommend it.

Can I get a "Yeaaargh!"?
