Scott Smallwood at the Chronicle has written an article about IA.
Looks pretty good, though it's weird reading about someone I consider a friend from the perspective of an outsider. Tim Burke gets a lot of ink, as does Ralph Luker.

Um, worker bee, why are you ranting here? This is my own personal blog, not some forum for spouting off about how you feel slighted for someone apparently not having it as rough as you. Nor am I Invisible Adjunct, nor Scott Smallwood, author of the article.
Perhaps you should get your own blog?
Meanwhile, cool your jets or I'm banning your butt.

Oh, and consider yourself disemvoweled for wasting my time and bandwidth with such sexist drivel. Go away now. Shoo!
