Q: How can you tell when Bill's working on/under a deadline for a book chapter, gathering last round of data from this term's service learning students, starting to plan his tenure portfolio, reading Big Stacks of Student Papers, trying to understand Brian Massumi, and trying to find time to start this year's Christmas baking?
A: When his blogging doesn't really generate new content so much as link to other things he thinks are amusing and interesting.
Q: How can you tell when his posts are chock full of aforementioned links?
A: When the subject lines all have "this" in the title: this is sad, chew on this, this guy's funny.

Q: Do you realize what a long set-up that was to link to some snarky blog?
