And I Blog…

Certainly not the first time a Twitter thread has led to a bumper sticker:

michaelzimmer: Right now: I supposed to be working on a journal article (tenure), but instead I’m writing a blog post (impact).

halavais: ∴ impact ≠ tenure RT @michaelzimmer: I supposed to be working on a journal article (tenure), but instead I’m writing a blog post (impact).

kfitz: @halavais @michaelzimmer Okay, that’s creepy. I literally just proofed the paragraph of the book on the relationship btw tenure and impact.

coffee001: .@halavais @michaelzimmer In some surreal version of the future, people will get tenure for blogging.

halavais: Let me fix that for you: “In some surreal version of the future, people will get tenure.”

coffee001: You have a point. Depends on the country you’re in, though.

snurb_dot_info: @coffee001 @halavais Someone needs to create an ‘I have tenure and I blog’ bumper sticker.

coffee001: @snurb_dot_info @halavais …for that, they need to have tenure and a blog. Not yet a combination that’s common over here.

halavais: Yep: http://www.cafepress.com/jamtoday RT @snurb_dot_info: [] Someone needs to create an ‘I have tenure and I blog’ bumper sticker.

dancohen: Fairly sure if I buy this “I have tenure & I blog” t-shirt I’ll get beaten up, but I’m not sure by whom http://bit.ly/h8pWw8 (via @halavais)

thinkingshop: @dancohen @halavais Not good for crowds containing #adjuncts & grad students (the other 70% of the teaching population)

    Thank you for this early morning smile. I wonder how many blogs suffer because of tenure/promotion pressures? Mine own certainly does!

    In some surreal version of the future, people will get tenure for blogging.

    In some real version of the future the issue will be irrelevant to how the academic world works, because it will be very different from what it is now. Different in what way, I don’t know, nor do I know how long it will take for a new dispensation to emerge. Nor do I know whether or not it will be better or worse than what we’ve got. But what we’ve got is gonna’ fall apart.
