Runblogger on the Meaning of Life

Pete's got an interesting, personal post up, where he notes:

"The problem I have is that blog writing is not typically viewed as a worthwhile pursuit among academics."

I agree, although this is changing; some of the other professor-bloggers I follow have commented on this. One notes that his Dean takes the popularity and influence of his blog (Instapundit) into consideration. The other posts at the Volokh Conspiracy, another law-blog, and notes that even in the Supreme Court blogs are being taken more seriously as they provide timely, high-quality analysis.

I think Pete Larson offers a great deal as a self-experimenting anatomist given the current debate concerning running and the correct use of our anatomy. Hopefully he can make the two work together.
