I was thrilled to have the opportunity to write an article about academic OR blogging in the latest IFORS newsletter (here’s the link, see p. 4). The article is more or less a FAQ about my blog: why I began it (I blamed Mike Trick), how I maintain it with a busy academic life and three kids, and why I do not think blogging as a untenured assistant professor is career suicide. The last question, I admit, is truly the most frequently asked question about the blog.
