Economy professors and blogging as a global educational tool

"So why do it? “It's a place in the intellectual influence game,” Mr DeLong replies ...... Mr DeLong caps his blogging at 90 minutes a day. His only blog revenue comes from selling advertising links to help cover the cost of his servers, which handle more than 20,000 visitors daily."

I don't think that any paper that Prof. Delong has published was downloaded 20,000 times in one day.

More questions on the benefit of blogging for collaboration and education. May be there should be a similar campaign like "this is your brain on drugs" stating "this is your brain with no blogs"
