Announcing a New Blog: Silent Glen Speaks

There is another Theory Blogger: Silent Glen. How can a blogger by silent? Sounds like a contradiction in terms! Hope its not a contradiction since she is already on our blogroll.

I emailed her the offer to annouce her blog (already annouced by ***SORELLE*** and Jeff Erikson and Livejournal) and to email me a statement about why she blogs, that I would post. She ended up emailing me and then posting her WHY I BLOG note on her own blog. Rather than waste electrons reproducing what she said, just go HERE.

In her first blog she asked for advice on being the lone theorists at a University (she just started). I gave her some advice and so did others. It was all good advice, though some of it was contradictory. Rather than restate it, I'll just point you HERE.

This entry is mostly two pointers to other blogs. This raises a question in a different context: In this age of easy access is it worth reprinting something? I have sometimes in my SIGACT NEWS book review column had a review that was Reprinted with permission. If the source I am reprinting from is online, and if the reader is reading SIGACT NEWS online, I could just point to it. We are not quite there yet, but there will come a time when Reprinted with permission will be silly. ~ ~

  2. Judging from the FOCS program, it appears that Sherman wins Best student paper and Sherstov wins best paper?

  4. I would say that giving a short snippet and then a link has a use. I trust you enough to read a short snippet and if THAT sounds interesting to then follow the link. I don't necessary follow links without more info about what's there since it does take a little more time.

    Sherstov is a student, too.
