To the several people who have emailed me a link to the blogging, outsourcing story

The BBC has a story about someone who is “paying someone to be him” — to blog, network, post, etc. I confess, that is also the secret to how I have maintained this blog for so long. I have hired a series of interns who do nothing but write these posts and manage my Facebook account, etc. Also, in much the same way as the legendary Bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe used to make members of his band go work on his farm, one of the requirements of the interns who maintain this blog is to go take care of my tomato plants — and I am (I mean, they are) getting tired of having to do that.
