I’m happy to report that my colleagues at Temple, having ignored my many faults, voted for my tenure this afternoon. (Along with Don Harris, Craig Green, and Duncan Hollis.) My tenure report, ironically, even quoted from this post of mine about measuring blogging. Anyway, though a university vote is pending, it was a nice day.
I wanted to take a moment and thank my anonymous outside reviewers. I obviously don’t know who you are, though at least one of you apparently mentioned reading the blog, so I hope you see this post. I’m really grateful for your spending time on an activity that is a great example of the failure of wealth-maximizing, self-interested, accounts of human behavior.
I’m now off to teach a last class, and celebrate, probably in that order.
