Hi Professor - Thanks for providing this really powerful blog. I built a blogger blog for a Death Penalty seminar audited last year and tried to carry the course links and focus over to Typepad. Fun stuff -- the online case book in public access format.
It's in its evolving infancy. We'll see how it goes. Your blog is the best.
