Where the bugged water cooler must reside
A couple of years ago, at a law blogger conference at Harvard Law School where folks debated the scholarly potential of blogs, Kate Litvak derisively described law professors blogs as a "bugged water cooler." As suggested by my paper for this conference, I have never thought much of this analogy; but this great-looking new group blog by law professors, because it is titled "The Faculty Lounge," makes me now think Litvak was perhaps on to something.
The Faculty Lounge, which is sub-titled "Conversations about law, culture, and academia," has a great group of contributors. Also, its first four category archives all involve topics dear to my heart: Blogs and Blogging, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Law School Hiring. I am already looking forward to frequently visiting TFL.
