Why Kaye Trammell is blogging so much less

I subscribe to a feed of Kaye Trammell’s great blog
I met her at the Oxford Internet Institute a few summers ago, we
invited her to a conference at Harvard Law School, and I’ve enjoyed
following her work since then via her blog. 

I’ve noticed
over the past few months much less updating from Kaye — now Prof.
Trammell.  And there, it seems, is the rub.  Prof. Trammell explains:
“So what has changed from the grad student me to the
professor-seeking-tenure me?  I’m not afraid that what I say will
be used against me in a court of tenure.”  This is consistent with
the discussion in the Chronicle of Higher Education last month about
tenure committees and blogging.
